Stone Flowers began their UK tour of Gone last month to a spellbound audience. The show, a unique collaboration between the refugee torture survivor collective and puppet theatre company, Box Tale Soup, was first performed at the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester, in 2016. The show has received wonderful reviews from the audience and has had a positive impact on their perceptions of refugees, inspiring empathy and action.
Towards the end of the 2016/17 school year, our Harmonise project reached eight schools across London and Greater Manchester over three weeks.
Harmonise aims to develop pupils’ understanding of the different cultures in their school, and to support the engagement of recently arrived refugee pupils.
A fictional fantasy told with beautiful puppetry, physical theatre and poetry, inspired by the true stories of refugee torture survivors Stone Flowers, interwoven with their vivid, atmospheric score. Join award-winners Music Action International and Box Tale Soup for a truly unique experience that will make you question what you thought you knew about refugees, and show the true resilience of the human spirit.
