Earlier this year, as part of our Open Call initiative, we challenged Jackie Walduck, Ailís Ní Ríain and Timothy Cape, and to make performances that responded to some of the big issues in the 21st century, whilst helping them develop their artistic practice and explore new ways of working.
The Migration Game
Drawing on practices of immersive theatre and computer gaming, The Migration Game places its audience as migrants to London. To progress to successive scenes in different spaces, you will have to solve puzzles and clues which are embedded within the music itself. The goal is to find your treasure – perhaps a settled life, a career, a family, a home in one of the world’s most vibrant and wealthy cities. Pitfalls are an incomprehensible bureaucratic system, the migration police, and the maze of cultural norms to be negotiated. The audience will be encouraged by the character Hope – the spirit of hope who has vowed to take care of all who move from one culture to another.
We’ll be asking you for your feedback on what you see and hear directly after the event to help shape the development of the piece.
