A Journey of a Home (online) is a 20 minute audio piece about migration, the nature of travel and home. The work is best experienced whilst walking or looking out of a window.

With themes of identity, border crossing and migration at the heart of the work, the piece deals with the ‘long moment’ created through the act of travelling, in which hope meets reality, the place where we simultaneously look towards the future and back at what we have just left.

This piece tells the story of a young woman’s journey to the UK. The story is fragmented by a second voice who questions and reminisces on ideas of travel and its availability, home, language, time and what it might feel to be one of the many at the long queue before passport control.

In gently questioning what home is, the piece reflects on all things that make our home- family, friends, environments and possessions- the physical things which support, reinforce and bound our identity.

A Journey of a Home was nominated for The Spirit of the Festival Award (The Judges’ Award) Clonmel Junction Festival, Ireland and selected for World Stage Design 2013.

A video BSL interpretation of the audio piece will also be available.
