About this Event

We Come from Far, Far Away is a performance for younger audiences and adults about refuge and refugee.

Performed in an immersive setting of a Mongolian yurt using live music, storytelling, clowning, shadow puppetry and a small tent to tell a big story in an intimate way.

Inside the tent there is a smaller tent, and inside the smaller tent there is a boy. He has travelled a long way. He has travelled mostly on his own. He can show the things he has brought with him, he can tell the reasons for his journey, he can tell about the route he has taken, he can’t tell you where the story ends...

We Come from Far, Far Away follows the story of two boys from Aleppo who travel to Norway. It’s a road trip type of story – from Turkey to Greece and then to Macedonia and so on – all the way to Oslo. But it’s also a complicated story, its about things and people and places and also, significantly, about life and death.

NIE developed We Come from Far, Far Away working with Hvalstad Transittmottak, an Asylum Centre in Norway, that providesa first reception point for young refugees (aged 13–18) who have arrived alone to claim asylum in Norway.
