Join us for THE GREAT EXPERIMENT

THE GREAT EXPERIMENT is a new, devised production responding to the history of indentured labour migration, with particular relevance to Mauritius.  The tour, from February 6-29, combines venues where we will target audiences from communities with a history of indenture with venues that can enhance and develop the artistic, socially relevant reputation of the company in the longer term, as well as its growing reputation for theatre that animates heritage spaces. The project includes heritage-based collection days and talks, as well as the performances.
