The Barbican and the Bridge Theatre will collaborate to bring Vox Motus’ installation Flight to London. Performances will be held at the Bridge Theatre from 9 November - 16 Jan. 2021.

Based on Caroline Brothers’ 2011 book Hinterland, Flight tells the story of Aryan and Kabir, two young Afghani men who set off from Kabul to London. As they begin their epic odyssey across the continent, the fate of Aryan and Kabir unfolds through a miniature world akin to a 3D graphic novel. 

To watch Flight, audience members will be seated alone and given headphones to listen to the production. Flight is adapted by Oliver Emanuel for the stage. Candice Edmunds and Jamie Harrison stage the show — Harrison previously designed illusions for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child at the Palace Theatre.

The cast of Flight includes Nalini Chetty, Emun Elliott and Farshid Rokey.

Created by Scottish theatre company Vox Motus, Flight received its world premiere at the Edinburgh International Festival in 2017. Since then, it’s toured around the world, with productions in New York, Melbourne and Abu Dhabi.

Other upcoming productions at the Bridge Theatre include A Christmas Carol, adapted by Nicholas Hytner and starring Simon Russell Beale and Patsy Ferran.

Flight is at the Bridge Theatre from 9 November - 16 Jan. 2021.
