Walk With Me

BY CREW FOR CALAIS

Theatre. 15th – 19th Feb, 18:30, £9.

The moment you leave everything behind.

What if the Frontline ran right through you? What if you didn’t know? Walk With Me explores a world in which eye contact is more powerful that weaponry.

Crew for Calais is what happens when people from the theatre and creative industries come together to help refugees. We are delighted to be working with VAULT this year. To find out more about what we do and how to get involved, visit www.crewforcalais.org.

What happens when you travel thousands of miles across Europe, so that your children can be safe in the UK?

Sammy was once brave enough to walk away.

Walk With Me explores a world in which eye contact is more powerful than weaponry. Where real power is the humanity and complexity at the heart of each human.

Maps drawn with chalk. The scent of woodsmoke from the Calais campfires. Riot police on Railton Road, Brixton. Immigration Enforcement pulling all the people of colour off a bus at Elephant and Castle.

Here in London are you safe in your own streets, your own home? What if the Frontline ran right through you?

Humanity. Forgiveness. The need believe in all of us right now.

The moment of clarity which moves you to leave everything you know, in order to save yourself.

Crew For Calais LogoCrew for Calais are programming three weeks of pared-down, rapid response performances in which we offer a different narrative about refugees to that presented in the UK’s media. There are no big sets. We’ve not had years to develop these pieces… and thus they have an immediacy, honesty and truth that makes them unique and exciting.
