At the core of LegalAliens’ vision is a theatre that includes migrants as artists, creatives, participants and audiences, and foregrounds creative women, onstage and off. Our work with foreign-born artists from around the world has shown us how much common ground and shared experience exist between us.
We bring that rich, layered and unique experience to the stage.
Our aesthetics marry Bertolt Brecht’s socio-political theatre with a striking visual approach that mixes text with multimedia and physical theatre. Our methodology draws on the pioneering work of mid-20th century practitioners including Augusto Boal, Jerzy Grotowski and Eugenio Barba, viewed through an intersectional and postcolonial lens, as well the work of Anne Bogart and Tina Landau.
