Gone: Stone Flowers in collaboration with Box Tale Soup


Music Action International present Gone, a unique collaboration by award winning Box Tale Soup and refugee collective Stone Flowers.

In a land far from here, the inhabitants of the great city of Home live a happy life, surrounded by fertile forests and bright rivers. But one day, the sky darkens, and a cruel Storm shrouds the city. With a furious temper and a ravenous greed, the Storm destroys all they hold dear and takes all they have. Forced to leave Home, join us as we follow one family on their incredible journey across many bizarre and bewildering lands, risking their lives in search of safety.

A remarkable tale of bravery in a fantastical world, told with beautiful handmade puppetry, physical theatre and poetry, Gone is inspired by the writing, experiences and true stories of refugee collective Stone Flowers, interwoven with their vivid, atmospheric score. This is a fictional fantasy about the realities of hope and survival.

Friday 24 June, 1-2pm, Bridgewater Hall (Manchester)
