An immersive treasure hunt show will take audiences on a journey through a strange, magical new world at Brighton Fringe 2019.
Inspired by The Tempest, this classic play is adapted to help make concepts of human displacement and the challenges faced by migrants to the UK accessible to a young audience.
This Noisy Isle is an outdoor adventure with puzzles and sprites. Audiences must steer their team through choppy seas to search for a new home and find where they belong. Miranda, Caliban, Prospero and Ariel lead audiences on a treasure hunt to learn about how people integrate in new countries with new languages.
This Noisy Isle uses a distinct blend of immersive theatre and street gaming to create an exciting and vibrant production. Audiences are drawn into the mysterious world of The Island to acquaint them with a key text of the British Canon. This compelling and imaginative show attempts to engage a new generation of theatre-goers with a radically different format to introduce them to difficult topics.
Human displacement is one of the defining issues of our time, with 65 million people globally displaced. Almost one in every 100. Infusing crucial social concerns with magic and poetry, This Noisy Isle widens children’s awareness of the challenges faced by migrants and refugees when arriving in new countries; such as learning new languages whilst trying to find new homes and communities. It also provides them with an opportunity for self-expression and to share their own understanding.
