Event description

Description

Where did you come from? How did you get to this point in your life? Where are you heading?

Where Is Home? is a dance theatre show that explores and investigates themes of global human migration and displacement.

Across the globe, from the dawn of civilization, migration has been a definitive and enduring feature of humanity. All humans in every social formation and society have recent or distant ancestors who trekked, wandered, or journeyed to new locations as a result of cataclysmic crisis or external demands that compelled relocation for survival and success.

Where Is Home? is a family show with a universal story

Soweto, late 80s. A young man struggles against the security forces, confronts tribal tensions and deals with the death of his own mother. He falls in love with a girl from the wrong neighbourhood and together they decide to run away from home and everything they have ever known…

Where Is Home? is a universal tale, inspired by a fable that has been around for over a thousand years. The story reveals the journey of the characters who seek their destinies, their dreams, their ‘treasure’. The journey is necessary for self-discovery, and suggests that people are often seeking far and wide when actually their treasure, their destiny, is ‘right under their noses’.

The show marks State of Emergency’s 30th anniversary as a producer and presents great music and dance from South Africa, mixed with urban culture from London and Los Angeles.

Suitable for 11 years and older
