"This show is ABSOLUTELY NOT about boats. Promise. Can we say vessels?"

A strange island where people are scared of "The Others". They spend their days making fog to make their country impenetrable.
Bizarre politicians arguing about slogans. 

Paper boats, of all sizes and colours.  
 

Who is the real threat? 
 

After the success of Ali In Wonder(Eng)land, we will return to Jacksons' Lane with another surreal, hilarious, yet deeply touching piece devised and created by participants in LegalAliens' free classes for refugees and migrants.

Using a fragmented narrative, physical theatre, songs and direct testimonies, Tugging At The Sea asks audiences to recognise the absurdity of the propaganda against asylum seekers. Thanks to a collaboration with visual artist Bern O’Donoghue, the stage will be covered in paper boats, as a celebration of shared humanity.  
 

In collaboration with Bedford Creative Arts and The Engine Room.
 

Funded by The Supporting Arts Foundation and Awards For All.
