New Project (9).jpg

In a near future, sea levels are rising and the coastline of the British Isles is crumbling into the sea, causing the displacement of many UK residents. You’re forced to leave your home and everything you know.

Are you ready to pack your life into a single bag and leave it all behind?

It is an uncertain global position where geographical boundaries are being redefined – often at great cost to human dignity.

 

SEAHORSE is a promenade performance which moves around the public spaces of Storyhouse incorporating voices from people of Chester to explore the ideas of displacement and relocation, challenging our preconceptions of migration by presenting it on our own doorstep. The action follows a man’s attempt to embark on a journey with his son to a new life.

What treasured items has he packed into his case?

What could he not bear to leave behind regardless of the cost?

Can familial bonds be kept in place when all around they are being torn apart?

 

Performed at and with the support of Storyhouse, Chester
