Written by Caridad Svich
Directed by the Company with Joke Menssink and Beatriz Cabur
July 17 – 19, 2017
Set in an imagined despoiled, war-torn landscape, Carthage/Cartagena uncovers the lost voices of those who have been displaced and isolated by slavery, human trafficking, and forced migration. Signdance imagines Svich’s text, which is constructed as a series of ten song-poems, through their signature hybrid form, incorporating dance, theatre, music and languages both spoken and signed.
The cast includes Lionel Macauley, Isolte Avila, David Bower, and Angelina Schwammmerlin.
Carthage/Cartagena is supported by Arts Council England
