Embark on a journey from West Yorkshire to the borders of Syria in this soul-searching tale of identity, written by one of the most exciting new voices working in theatre today.

Mixing themes of loss, dreams and fulfilment with ideas of family, romance and culture, this new work from award-winning performer lisa luxx is a one-woman powerhouse. Exploring luxx’s relationship to her own mixed-heritage body, it asks us to consider how we become the people we are, while questioning the role displacement plays in forming our identity.

Funny, philosophical and utterly fearless, this explorative production is a chance to see a multi-discipline performer working at the top of their game.
