  • Visitor Information

Director Renato Rocha leads a group of international young artists in Turfed, a site-specific work which looks at the issue of youth homelessness. Inspired by the double meaning of a football pitch's turf and being turfed out from home, the use of spoken word, choreography and visual theatre infuses the intimate performances.
