As the flood rises, Imogen is swept up on a fantastical wave of self-discovery, unlocking an entirely new perspective on the place she once called home...

This new production is a heart-warming story of memory, imagination and parenthood. Find your way back home with Temper Theatre's latest production, which combines their signature blend of fluid, muscular movement, soul-shaking soundscapes, and evocative imagery, accompanied by original music composed by Dave Price (National Theatre, RSC, Gecko).

It wasn’t until my family home was about to disappear from my life forever that I recognised the fundamental impact my home had on me.To me the Fens were a boring dead-end swamp.A trap to escape from at the first possible opportunity.But as I travelled home to help my parents move house, I was struck by a surprising series of emotions which led me to create HOME... As I travelled the boring flat Fenland became the extraordinary waterland it once was, my community morphed into an ancient tribe of storytellers, the rivers filled with eels and the epic East Anglian skies illuminated a wealth of history long forgotten.The journey took me through time and space and ultimately dropped me off filled to the brim with a new-found love for my homeland. HOME is inspired by what we relinquish when we move away from where we begin our lives and the unsteadying emotions which can resurface when we find our way back. As the sea levels rise and the Fens return to the water, my family story will be washed away.... Finn Morrell, Artistic Director
