Fired Up, the Staffordshire based theatre company, who are known for developing and performing cutting edge, outside of the box products, enters into the frightening and fallow mind set of a collective group of refugees and migrants living side by side, head to toe in a container and on the sea somewhere around the English coast. Stacked and breathless, we journey into their world of oppression, physical abuse, fear, faith, hope and love.
The play takes the audience into the uncertain, frightening world of chaos and claustrophobia, with a dialogue that initially seeks to remember all that has been lost as the only thread on which the refugees can survive and later sees them riding wave upon wave of trying and failing to find a new home, eventually receiving sanctuary and a restless hope.
The production is delivered through a poetic narrative from the foremost poets on conflict and compassion along with film projection, original music and lyrics, storytelling and raw physicality.
Mausoleum won the 2016 John Welmesley Award from the Westhill Trust, who funded this tour around communities working with refugees and asylum seekers.
Fired Up, once again prepares to take risks to produce a piece of powerful, engaging and thought provoking performance for all communities. Click on the poster below to book tickets via the Eventbrite page.
