Fringe Review: A Sense of Home

A sense of home Alirio Zavarce has a real talent in finding the most interesting stories in the most mundane and down-to-Earth things. He is able to turn stories of climbing trees, telling ghosts stories and moving overseas into extraordinary works of theatrical art. With an amazingly creative technical crew and fantastic young actors, Zavarce has produced a tender and completely charming show, full of colour, light and childlike whimsy.

The Migration Project

A lot of evocative images and provocative migration detail is squeezed into the sixty minute main stage performance and with Zavarceʼs strong guiding narration supporting the young performers, at times didactic presentation style, the audience becomes caught up in the stories themselves rather than any devised character performance work. These are real young people telling their own real stories; for that alone The Migration Project needs to be applauded.
