Fuga Perpetua

TO BOOK CONTACT BOX OFFICE ON 0115 846 7777

The more we read and hear about refugees, it seems we understand and relate to their experience less. Fuga Perpetua - musical terms translated together as ‘always running’, the condition of refugees unable to return but compelled to move on - combines live music, sound recordings, visual projections and movement to create an immersive environment. As a ‘storytelling without words’, we are invited to relate to refugees through our senses of hearing and sight, intuition and imagination, crossing the border between ‘us’ and ‘them’.
