Performed by a mixed ensemble, including those who have recently sought refuge in the UK, Welcome to the UK has its world premiere at The Bunker this January.
With live music, horror, visual poetry, physical comedy and candy floss, Welcome to the UK tackles the migrant experience using satire to highlight the current hostile environment from the insane processes asylum seekers undergo when they arrive in this country, to how Brexit has affected the lives of European and British citizens alike. They may have thought the journey was over once they left the Calais Jungle – they thought wrong.
Featuring a cast from three different continents, Welcome to the UK has been created by a community determined to change the negative narrative often associated with refugees. It seeks to raise awareness of the obstacles facing asylum seekers.
Welcome to the UK is on at The Bunker, 53A Southwark Street, SE1 1RU from 23rd January – 16th February. Times: Tuesday – Saturday, 7.30pm; Tuesday matinees, 3pm. Admission: £16 (£12 concessions). Phone: 0207 234 0486.
