when in roam

interdisciplinary project on home & belonging

when in roam is a new work by Orphaned Limbs Collective, which explores the stories of roamers, stayers and leavers who search, run from or yearn for home.

 

Using humour and poignant storytelling, this exciting project combines movement, aerial dance, physical theatre and original musical composition, bringing about a performance suitable for all audiences.
