York Theatre Royal presents
THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2008 Written by Xanthe Gresham Directed by Juliet Forster Behind every screaming headline about asylum seekers there’s a human story. Frightening, funny, tragic or triumphant these unheard tales are brought to the stage by a story teller and musician. Exuberant and bursting with life and hope The Journey takes you to all corners of the world in the company of the most inspiring travellers. ‘Xanthe Graham’s measured and sure performance, dressed in fire, speaking like a woman spitting jewels, is matched by Zirak Hamad’s sensitive music and vibrant interventions – the weave of un-translated Kurdish lyrics and English storytelling creates a helpful distance, a reserve through which the audience can enter the land of symbols’ Phil Smith Lit Up.
