Somebody’s Daughter Show, discussion, and movement workshops
A contemporary dance and physical theatre show about human trafficking and digital porn, developed with support by the Cambridge Centre of Applied Research in Human Trafficking (CCARHT). This 7-cast member show, inspires hope, compassion and change.
This mind-bending mimodrame takes a look at the backwards puzzle pieces in the life of a young trafficked woman, and it walks the streets of poverty, desperation, and consumerism, and looks at human trafficking’s effect modern society and social media.
Following the show, Infusion provides guided discussions and workshops that allow students to kinesthetically engage with topics relating to concepts of linking and connecting, isolation and travel, the law of supply and demand, and concepts of control and manipulation. In this way, students can safely understand the power struggles and cost of human trafficking on society.
Students explore movement to communicate thought, character, emotion, and story. Critical thinking skills, working as a group, and story creation are all part of this creative course as student help to develop their own stories and them bring them to life. Educational stimulus for Art, Drama/Theatre, and Physical Education.

Educational stimulus for Art, Science (KS2), Design, and Music.
