The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

A multilingual celebration of personal identity.

When every citizen is ordered to return to their place of birth, Where We Began examines where we could end up.

The UK’s first Theatre Company of Sanctuary, Stand and Be Counted present a wild and vivid vision of the future, combining storytelling, movement and live music. Five performers from across the globe challenge existing notions of ‘home’ in this multilingual celebration of personal identity.

Commissioned by Camden People's Theatre, Cast and Theatre in the Mill and supported by Arts Council England.

Where We Began is a winner of the Bridging the Gap scheme led by Arc Stockton and toured nationally in 2018.

There will be a live Q&A with the creative team after the performance.

This performance contains mild swearing and political themes.

Register in advance – this event will include a Q&A, which is only available to those attending via Zoom.

Or watch without interaction below during/after the live stream.

Free – donations welcome.
