Where We Began

Price: Free


Filmed at the York Theatre Royal. Take a look if you missed this production the first time round.

A compelling and very current piece of theatre shows how we all come from the same place....
When every citizen is ordered to return to their place of birth, ‘Where We Began’ examines where we could end up.

The UK’s first Theatre Company of Sanctuary, Stand and Be Counted present a wild and vivid vision of the future, combining storytelling, movement and live music. Five performers from across the globe challenge existing notions of ‘home’ in this multilingual celebration of personal identity.
