Migrant-te is an outdoor performance created by Latinx artists Pepa Duarte and Charly Monreal. The show explores the act of ‘having tea’ in Latin America, bringing this intimate ritual from the privacy of family homes to the public space through sound and movement.
Created by a diverse team of migrant creatives MIGRAN-TE is designed to take ownership of the streets, foregrounding the stories of those often unheard. Performed live by two actors, the piece is accompanied by a soundscape created by composer and musician Tom Sochas that gathers experiences collected in research with seven Latinx households in the UK about their journey to the UK. Through their voices, the piece aims to carry the audience to various Latin American homes.
Pepa Duarte is a Peruvian actor, writer and theatre maker based in London whose work often explores themes of identity, migration, feminism and belonging. Charly Monreal is a London-based Chilean physical performer and theatre maker interested in movement, soundscape, and its possibilities in the space.
