Wrestling with colonisation.
Assimilate is storytelling at its rawest, using movement, song, soundscapes and visuals to help navigate what it is to live in a society that erases your existence and suppresses cultural significance. Through the voice of four fierce women the show explores the themes of language, identity, belonging, migration, detachment and community.This is an invitation to share, feel and reflect in a colonial world that enforces borders.
Assimilate is an immersive piece that encourages the audience to participate in building the space together.We are definitely getting rid of that fourth wall.
