New International Encounter: We Come From Far Far Away

New International Encounter: We Come From Far Far Away



A show for younger audiences about refuge and refugees.

Performed in a unique setting - a Mongolian Yurt - We Come From Far Far Away explores refugee stories, and follows the difficult and amazing journey of two boys who travel alone from Aleppo, Syria to Norway seeking refuge.

The award-winning New International Encounter use storytelling, shadow puppetry, comedy, clowning, live music (including guitar, clarinet and cajon) and a small tent to tell a big story in an intimate way.
