Wild Geese: A new show about exile, displacement, migration and the search for employment and security in a global economy


Featuring the stories of refugee cleaners in London’s Canary Wharf, Chinese cockle-pickers in Morecambe Bay, Iranian asylum seekers and Irish, African/Caribbean and South Asian immigrant communities, Wild Geese is a video ballad interweaving interviews, documentary film and animation with live music and song.

It features the musical styles of Africa, America, Asia and Europe ­ from reggae, rap and rock to folk, flamenco and klezmer ­ with strong messages about the human costs of globalisation.

“It is so important that people speak up about the racism and prejudice against refugees and asylum seekers; your production is a wonderful way of doing that.” ­ Tony Brett Young, Mayor, London Borough of Sutton
