    Welcome to the floodlands -

    Milly heads out over the fields searching for something but instead of answers she meets riddles on the dancefloor and shadows by the fireside.

    A solo-show inspired by interviews with roadside dwellers across the south west and drawing on the musical history of this new traveller community, from festivals to free parties, to songs around the fire. Roadside is a celebration of dance floor revelations and the emergence of a new traveller culture from festivals and free parties. 

    Roadside is a chaotic and tender exploration of what home can mean. 

    Initially developed as part of Starting Blocks 2023 and now supported by ACE, Trinity Centre and Camden Peoples Theatre.
