Monday 1 - Friday 5 April

In this residency Farah and collaborators will continue research on The World We Share – a new work for multi-generational audiences that explores themes of a ‘diverse society’ with a multi-generational ensemble.

The World We Share invites audiences to participate in collective thinking and action to improve our lives in the world we share – which feels urgent now more than ever in the current political and environmental circumstances.

With audiences The World We Share explores the complex constellations of people and lived experiences, specifically focusing on personal and collective problems related to authority, racism, ableism and ageism and looking for ways of resolving these problems.

The World We Share will premiere in October 2024 at Assembly Roxy.

The World We Share is in partnership with Lyra, and supported by Creative Scotland, Dance Base and Imaginate.
