A woman’s absurdist expedition in search of home. With a stick as a compass, fragile tape as a map, and a live sound chorus of human birds acting as guides, this piece embarks on a kaleidoscopic movement, sound and text journey – to one’s place of origin and beyond.
Part of Compass at Brighton Open Air Theatre on June 2016. A mixed bill with Clare Whistler and Xelis de Toro, produced and curated by Laura Gwynne.
