Tsunagu/Connect Live

Four Japanese women are your tour guides on a kaleidoscopic journey across continents and decades, from Shōwa era Japan to the bedsits of 90’s London, via the Empire Windrush’s final voyage and present-day immigration nightmares.

Memories. Fears. Aspirations. The women reveal the complex, multi-layered reality of migrants reconciling with rootlessness.

"What price must we pay to create a third space, in neither one nation nor the other, where we finally have room to be ourselves?”

Where exhibition meets performance, Tsunagu/Connect Live is an immersive promenade adventure, inspired and informed by the stories of women who were born in Japan but who have settled in the UK since 1945.
