Eyes and Ears

Infusion dancers Dan and Rachel

Infusion Physical Theatre was pleased to be a part of the East Cambridgeshire Community Safety Partnership! As part of their vulnerable persons awareness campaign called Eyes and Ears, we presented a snippit from our anti-human trafficking work Somebody’s Daughter, in the Lady Chapel of the Stunning Ely Cathedral. It was a powerful event, talking with city and county councillors, police men and women, and people from all sectors sharing their stories about the horribly local problem of trafficking. It was also great to hear about the many things people are doing to confront it.

We were especially grateful for the kind words the police said, thanking us for our visual and compelling way of helping people engage with the topic. We hope to work with several of our new friends again soon! Thanks to the Romsini Centre for setting this up!

Show Launch Success

Special thanks to all those who came or contributed to the launch of our anti human trafficking show Just Sex. Saturday night was fantastic, with great insights from Dr. Carrie Pemberton Ford of Cambridge Centre of Applied Research in Human Trafficking, and the hard hitting dance performance by the multi-national cast members of Infusion!

We’re working on video of our full show, in the meantime catch some initial footage from our rehearsal sharing here!

Also, to find out more details about Just Sex, or to read more about our program for Sixth Form Colleges, you can still access the event details through our ticketing site for last Saturday. This event is no longer live.

Event Launch

Help us launch our new anti-human trafficking initiative titled Just Sex through our Eventbrite page:

We have a brilliant team of dancers, mimes, composer and lighting/sound designer committed to making this project happen. But we need people to get behind us, and get this important show out of the rehearsal studio, and off the page,  and into the minds and hearts of people across England. We also hope to tour internationallty in the future.

Will you be one of our partners, to make this vision come to life?

Into Development…

We are fundraising for a new show! Back us on Eventbrite…!

After 8 months of  intense research and logistics Infusion is taking on the issue of human trafficking.

We’re in development of a hard-hitting, soulful look into the modern day problem of human trafficking for sexual exploitation, to bring humanity and dignity to the trafficked persons on the street and on the other side of the webcam. The production is set to be a bone-jarring, high-energy, 30 minute physical journey through highs and lows of modern life in the digital age, staring down internet porn, human trafficking, and seduction of the human conscience. Through dance, mime, and original music Infusion crafts a 3D experience for all viewers of what happens when capitalism and desire meets poverty and desperation.

But can our attitudes change?

These are some stats. Help us change them!

•Worldwide more than 800,000 men, women, and children are trafficked over borders (or moved within their own country) every year
•77% of trafficked victims are women
•87% of trafficked victims are sexually exploited
•Human trafficking is a worldwide criminal activity with annual profits estimated to be $36 billion
•London police estimate that 70 percent of the 88,000 women involved in prostitution in England and Wales are under the control of traffickers
