Escape 2 follows on from 2016’s Escape, recreating and re-telling the emotional journey of a refugee using innovative aerial dance and multimedia, against a stirring soundscape by Stefano Guzzetti. Fusing pole and silks performance with dance theatre, Escape 2 explores the impact of a new environment on a refugee, who must face social, political and psychological challenges in order to integrate with a new society.
