The Survivor comes to Scarborough on Saturday May 7

It brings to life the story of a survivor of conflict in the Trojan Wars. She starts her journey washed up on a shore unfamiliar to her. She is lost; frightened and alone.

The project welcomes her in each town with artworks, music, and spoken word as she arrives. She will then be taken on a tour through coastal towns to explore her surroundings and offered shelter along the journey.

The visual performance tells the tale of the Survivor, a teenage girl displaced by war and conflict.

The Survivor will be visiting Scarborough South Bay on Saturday May 7.
