Touching Home will be a new sensory theatre show inspired by the everyday stories of London migrants. Walking away from the dramatic narratives shared by the media, we want to explore the intimacy of the experience of leaving one’s country and the feelings that connect us all as humans. But we won’t describe it: we want audiences to feel it, to touch it, to smell it, to taste it.

About the company

27 degrees is a multicultural collective of artists that create sensory audience experiences in unusual spaces. We believe arts should not only take place behind the closed doors of theatres, and all a theatre company needs is a solid suitcase and a sense of adventure. We perform in public spaces, museums, churches, underground tunnels, or in the middle of the woods.

Our work interweaves theatre with music, circus, dance, puppetry and installation to create immersive and sensory journeys that appeal to the widest possible audiences. With an artistic voice that is both visual and physical, we revisit traditional stories that resonate with the contemporary world.
