How do you belong to a place that does not see you?
Four strangers are about to become collateral damage in the government’s plans to create a hostile environment for illegal immigrants. Detained together after a random spot check in London, they begin to unravel in the pressure-filled holding room, where they are left without answers. Some of them are undocumented migrants, others insist they are not – but all are certain that whatever the situation, the UK is their home. At least, the only home they have left.
At a time when displacement is a constant, where Britain is faced with Brexit and a war on immigration, Ilé la Wà interrogates what it means to say we are home.
You claim Britain. Has it chosen you?
The performance on Fri 22 Jun will be followed by a discussion with the cast and creative team.
Exhibition: Home Is...
A free exhibition that goes hand in hand with the show, exploring home and displacement curated by Ilé la Wà writer Tolu Agbelusi.
Here from Sat 2 Jun - Sat 7 Jul.
