«Far From Home» by Alleyne Dance brings to the stage a  sensitive and atmospheric dance production. Six professional dance artists and a cast of non-professional movers from the local community in Bern highlight the emotional and mental stresses of migrant families. At the same time, they ask what happens in those communities where migrants settle. Undoubtedly, migration results in a certain amount of unrest: For migrants, it is a major, sometimes (life-)threatening break in their biography, while migration can trigger unrest in their new locations.
