Dancing, Talking, Taboo!
How does a nation tell its history? We are used to traditional, accepted narratives but what happens when you ask the woman in the street -Where did your family come from? What was the key moment of your life that changed you? What is it like being an outsider in England? A Roma talks of being attacked on the English street. A French woman remembers stuffing her fists in her mouth, as a baby, as she is hidden from the Nazis. A white working class northerner remembers being raped at seven years old by her father. A Kurdish refugee escapes a Turkish jail but finds that her memories follow her to London. An African asylum- seeker has trouble learning English because of her trauma. A Chinese woman escapes domestic violence through her love of dance.
