by Marie Myrie - directed by Ewa Dina
ROUTE originated from verbatim and poetry, it plays with the journey of self-acceptance and the meaning of home. Having parent's that migrated as a product of the Windrush in 1948 from Jamaica, she finds herself embarking in a mirrored experience of isolation during her time at a predominantly white middle-class university.
ROUTE, is a vibrant, uplifting and thought-provoking piece and allows plenty of room for play and interpretation. With a mix of Caribbean themes such as reggae and hard food - it brings it's audience into the world that our protagonist must face up to.
