My Land Your Land

My Land Your Land premiered at the acclaimed Edinburgh International Children's Festival 29 May - 6th June 2021

A new version for Leicester was commissioned by Attenborough Arts Centre, running 1st-23rd October 2021.

 MY LAND YOUR LAND (2021) is an audio work about home, foregrounding young people's voices from migrant background. 

What do you think when you think of home? Is it the place you keep your clothes? A place to sleep? Is it the place your mum and dad lives? Is it somewhere your friends can visit? Or it is far away, a place you came from once? A place you visit only in holidays? A place you barely know, and where they speak another language? Join us on this audio journey of young people's voices of home.
