Where We Began

Where We Began

Tue 09 October 2018

Autumn 2018 | Season Highlight
Developed with Bridging The Gap. Funded by Arts Council England with commissioning support from Camden People's Theatre, Cast and Theatre in the Mill.

When every citizen is ordered to return to their place of birth, ‘Where We Began’ examines where we could end up.

The UK’s first Theatre Company of Sanctuary, Stand and Be Counted present a wild and vivid vision of the future, combining storytelling, movement and live music. Five performers from across the globe challenge existing notions of ‘home’ in this multilingual celebration of personal identity.
