“A visual feast”
Theatre Bubble

“Spellbinding music, mesmerising dance moves and narratives in languages from all over the world, make it a truly entertaining and thought-provoking experience”
Mancunian Matters

“Offers its own remarkable, mesmerising take on the world we live in, full of horror and hope, fortitude and fear, love and lamentation and is an amazing achievement”

"The company have re-kindled feelings of hope and the belief that together we can change the world."
Anita MacCullum, Weston-super-Mum

“it is the endearing and distressing narrative of refugees struggling to find a place of acceptance that truly makes this production great.”
“It’s a stunning portrayal of an immigrant’s story and has both myself and my friend in tears. After the show, one woman aptly describes this narrative as ‘a call to arms’.”

“A spontaneous standing ovation was well deserved. On a cold, February, Thursday night ovations have to be earned, and well-earned it was.”
