First shown at Southbank Centre in May 2016 and at Rich Mix in September 2016,  ’Songs of Immigrants and Experience’ is a contemporary fairy tale told in spoken word, song and comedy.

Luna Khan is a teenage girl who begins to wear a veil, as she tries to figure out her own identity. One an argument between her parents forces her into a forest, where she meets a witch. Luna is transported across an ocean on Amira Khayyam’s ruby yacht, to an island called the Heart of Suffering. There, she falls in love with a winged angel – before crashing back down to earth with a bang.

Initial development was kindly supported by Arts Council England, Southbank Centre and Rich Mix.
