Club Asylum

8 Feb – 15 Mar 2002
Written and directed by
John Retallack

A devised dance theatre piece about teenage asylum seekers in Glasgow based on research with both young asylum seekers and residents. Written by John Retallack with choreography by Andy Howitt (YDance), Club Asylum is a thrilling fusion of dance, theatre and music.

“I speak ninety-nine languages that nobody wants to learn / I practice all kind of religion that get me in all kinds of trouble / I miss home like hell and hell is where my home is / I want to fit the landscape but I stand out a mile / I want to I want to I want to I want to be like you”
