Stories of Refuge

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

You have no home and no money. Those you love were violently wrenched from you. Who do you turn to? What do you turn into?

UNSTATED is a powerful story based on the true testimonies of the men and women who seek refuge in the UK. Sometimes smuggled, sometimes forced from their own land; washed up on the tide of British Society, how welcome are they?

Topher Campbell's compelling production fuses an explosive mix of film and live action. Written by Fin Kennedy (John Whiting Award) from filmed interviews and designed by international artist Roney Fraser-Munroe, the Red Room's UNSTATED exposes how we treat some of societies most vulnerable.

Part performance, part installation, UNSTATED is an interactive show presented in a promenade space with the venue being turned into a 'removal centre'.

UNSTATED is a morality play of our times that continues the RED ROOM practice of creating potent work to inspire audiences who question the changing world.
