Tell us a Journey

Dotted lines criss-cross a map of the world spread out across the floor tracing migration routes across time and space. From Oceania to Madagascar in 1000 AD, and Syria to Turkey in 2016, this unique map-making performance-installation considers the push and pull factors of global migration - from the personal to the political - and invites you to add your own story to the map.

We are very pleased to be re-staging The Journeys, our collaboration with Stand and Be Counted Theatre, for the Caravan International Showcase in Brighton. Once again, we are gathering stories to put on the map during the performance, and we’d love to hear yours.

Do you have a migration to tell us about? It could be yours, your family’s, your friend’s. It could be recent, it could be historical. It could be short - just the starting point and the destination - it could be a long, detailed story. We’re particularly interested in the route of the journey, when it happened, and who it was who travelled - but of course we would love to hear anything else you want to tell us. We’ll try to trace the route onto our world map during the performance.

If you have a journey to share with us: 

The flows of migrations through history unfold through the live construction of a map. This performance invites you to engage with the process of mapping migrations, and to consider the history and the reasons for movement- whether pushed or pulled…

We are delighted to present the first ever performance of The Journeys, in collaboration with Stand & Be Counted Theatre, the UK’s first ‘Theatre Company of Sanctuary.’

Drop in and see us on 13th & 14th May in Brighton, stay for as long or short a time as you wish, watch the map grow, and, if you wish, tell us a story of migration of your own, or one you have heard.

If you can’t join us, follow our progress on Twitter and Instagram at #TheJourneys.
