BE//LONGING is a thought-provoking, immersive, multi-media theatre production, developed by award-winning political theatre collective Take Back that utilises installations, music, art, video and scripted theatre to create an experience that boldly addresses perceptions of migration
A creative partnership with the University’s new Migration Lab and Hope Mill Theatre, the engaging production will shine a spotlight on the findings of the Lab’s research, telling real people’s stories of migration.
Be//Longing is the flagship production in the Lab’s plan to use writing, theatre and live events to inform debate in local, national and global communities to support and communicate its work.
Throughout the run, Hope Mill Theatre will be completely transformed to resemble a warehouse on the edge of a border, and after making their journey to the theatre, audience members will reach an arrivals area where their tickets will be checked and processed, they’ll receive a map and they’ll cross the border to Be//Longing.
