It's just another day in the office when news that a colleague has been sexually assaulted reaches the boardroom. Emotions run high, but deadlines need to be met. Walking Home is a devised performance exploring the politics and tensions within the issue of sexual violence against women and people of marginalised genders.
Based on more than 40 true stories of real experiences collected from people of diverse genders, nationalities and walks of life from around the world, Walking Home is a hard-hitting piece of new writing that sheds light on the community's role in this vital conversation – and hopes to help it progress well beyond the stage.
Devised by the female-led production company Prickly Pear Productions, the show is directed by Chantelle Micallef Grimaud and stars Sean Borg, Michela Farrugia, Alex Weenink and Zoë Alba Farrugia.
This performance is supported by Arts Council Malta – Programme Support Fund.
