Vox Motus


From a private booth, you’ll be drawn in close to this tale of orphaned brothers and their desperate odyssey across Europe, the action unfolding in an exquisite world of miniatures moving before you.

With their small inheritance stitched into their clothes, young Aryan and Kabir embark on an epic journey by foot from Kabul to London. Braving bustling train stations, hazardous sea crossings and menacing strangers, their heart-wrenching story speaks of terror, hope and survival. Based on Caroline Brothers’ novel Hinterland, Flight mixes timely themes with engrossing images to honour the resilience of refugee children adrift in dangerous lands.

At the Bridge Theatre, our partner venue, you’ll be seated individually and given headphones for this intimate experience staged by Candice Edmunds and Jamie Harrison (magic and illusions designer, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child). As detailed model sets and figures revolve to form gripping scenes, accompanied by enclosing sound and narration, the effect is of a 3-D graphic novel brought to life.
