Tugging At The Sea

6 July '24 at 7:30 pm - 7 July '24 at 8:30 pm

“If I was a moon, I’d tug at the sea, to draw the land piece by piece closer to me…”

A strange place where once welcoming people are now barricading themselves.
Bizarre politicians arguing about slogans.
Paper boats, of all sizes and colours.
Who are the real invaders?

After the success of Ali In Wonder(Eng)land, LegalAliens Theatre returns to Jacksons Lane with another surreal, hilarious, yet deeply touching piece devised and created by 25 participants in their free classes for refugees and migrants.

Using a fragmented narrative, physical theatre, songs and direct testimonies, Tugging At The Sea asks audiences to recognise the absurdity of the propaganda against asylum seekers. Thanks to a collaboration with visual artist Bern O’Donoghue, the stage will be covered in paper boats, as a celebration of shared humanity.
