RAIN IN AMERICA!
Sections of AnNua’s first production, ‘Rain’, are to be included in Christorpher Norby’s new work ‘Place’

Civilians’ is a stream of consciousness with scripted scenes moving between war, shopping, torture, displacement, lifestyle, surveillance and escapism. The work has a dream like quality, at times verging on nightmare. In a sense, it is a requiem. To assist in creating this ‘dream’ we are using image, shadow and composition along with audio design and acted scenes.
Following our Liverpool premiere of HOME during June 2015 audience and critical acclaim has been pouring in.
“‘Home’ is a beautifully written and performed work … It shows real compassion for the plight of refugees. It could go on to become a classic”.

Voices on the wind coming in off the sea: HOME 2016 edits copy 2
HOME is a fast and furious play through which AnNua examine the plight of refugees, of those forced to leave home and to seek another, state power and police brutality. We have included commentary and recorded languages gathered from migrants and refugees in Australia, Ireland and England. These roll off the sea as the play unfolds and are mixed with a beautiful composition from Brian Bridges. Funny, furious and at times very sad, Home is a journey through time and imagination
