Journey of a Refugee

Part of This is Croydon, Theatre-Rites with Agudo Dance Company present this powerful and moving production that explores the journey and arrival of a refugee, and the universal theme of people searching for a place they can call home.

Come and immerse yourself in this world, and experience stories told through a beautiful blend of puppetry and performance.  Suitable for everyone, especially school and family audiences.

Journey of a Refugee is a promenade performance and audiences will walk through installations as the story unfolds.

This production is inspired by The Welcoming Party originally co-produced by Theatre-Rites, Manchester International Festival, Z-arts and the Ruhrtriennale Festival.

“It’s a gorgeous, politically engaged and beautifully created show.” ★★★★★  The Reviews Hub

“This is, no two ways about it, an astonishing piece of theatre: a kids’ show that handles immigration both as lived experience and as a bureaucratic system, with such nuance and sophistication that it teaches adults a thing or two as well” ★★★★★ WhatsonStage, The Welcoming Party
