From baking African deserts to the snow angels of a UK winter, this emotional and heartfelt story of migration reveals one girl’s hopeful flight into a new life.
Two very different characters find common ground within the poetry of the streets, and the audience becomes the prized confidante on a young girl’s journey, where each step towards security is fraught with danger, prejudice and the unknown.
Map of Me explored how a displaced child finds a sense of self and belonging, in a moving and uplifting show that was written from real-life experiences of young asylum seekers. It tells the story of a young girl fleeing war in her homeland as she seeks safety, identity and a place to call home.
Map of Me featured prize-winning poets and performers Azfa Awad and Rosemary Harris. It was the third work in the Suitcase Trilogy of spoken word performances about migration for young audiences, developed by Papertale in association with Half Moon Theatre.
A Papertale production which toured nationally as part of Half Moon Presents.
Spoken word artist Rosemary Harris talks about how the Half Moon Theatre audience in Tower Hamlets have responded to Map of Me, the third in her trilogy of work about child migration, produced in collaboration with the Half Moon as part of Half Moon Presents.
