What are the reasons that humans find themselves unsettled? How can acts of leaving, of arriving, or of waiting somewhere in between impact individuals and communities? ‘Unsettled’, a participatory performance project centered on human migration patterns and identity, plays on the idea of physically uprooting to “settle” somewhere new and the notion of feeling “unsettled” by unfamiliar people, places, customs, and traditions as experienced by both those who migrate and those who are part of existing communities. ‘Unsettled’ explores how identities are constructed and transformed by movement. The project is supported by Culture Moves Europe and the European Festivals Association (EFFEA) and is being developed in partnership with Teatro in Quota, Lacuna Festivals, and GogolFest with communities where transience and migration are urgent social issues.
