We all have a nationality. Or almost all of us. Most are inherited, and some are given to us.
A Fringe First award-winner, Status is a show about someone who doesn't want his anymore. About running away from the national story you're given. About who is responsible for that story and what might happen to it if you give it up.
In the midst of a cultural and political climate dominated by Brexit, the Windrush scandal and debates about who has the right to belong, Chris Thorpe questions how we acquire these narratives and the internal and political conflicts that arise when people choose not to accept their nationality.
It’s a globe-spanning journey of attempted escape, with songs along the way.
This event is part of Enable US Festival.
