FAR FROM HOME
BY ALLEYNE DANCE (UK)
“Far From Home brings to the stage the humanity of told and untold stories by voices not always heard.”
Bringing Alleyne Dance’s dynamic, powerhouse style to the stage, Far From Home is a hard hitting, atmospheric, abstract narrative dance production exploring the topic of immigration.
Performed by 6 professional dance artists and a supporting cast of non-professional movers recruited from the local community, the performance ensemble highlights the emotional and mental stresses of migrant families, as well as the impact on communities where migrants “settle”, as we unpick the meaning of tolerance and practice of integration.
Far From Home has been co-commissioned by The Place, Dance City Newcastle, Dance East and Dampfzentrale Bern with support from Arts Council England National Lottery Projects Grant.
