Counter Trafficking Show

Just Sex: a Counter Trafficking Show

A bold fusion of contemporary dance and physical theatre, Infusion takes a tour-de-force look at the backwards puzzle pieces of the life of a prostituted woman. Based on survivor stories and documentation, Infusion tackles human trafficking for sexual exploitation, and finds a surprise culprit. Hard-edged, fast-paced and soulful, this wordless epic exposes the powers and players of one of the world’s fastest growing criminal trades: sex.

Developed in partnership with Cambridge Centre of Applied Research in Human Trafficking (CCARHT)

Ages 15+ due to mature subject matter

Thursday 4th July, 2019

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!

community support and awareness groups set up for the event

 

Into the woods… well, jungle…

Infusion rejoins the creative team behind Apple n Spice, an Indian dance experience, and a fairy-tale mash-up: comparing the two step-mothers from eastern and western tales. Snow White and Grimhilde meet Ram and Kaikeye in the deep forests of folklore, in a contemporary/south Indian and shadow theatre fusion.

We’re back in the props workshop developing all new shadows, and choreography is well under way! Look for us in the Library Present Autumn Menu for Hertfordshire!
