Cutting the Cord

21-26 February 2011, London

Inspired by true stories, Cutting the Cord is an intimate and heart-warming physical theatre piece.


This is the kind of theatre that engages and touches its audience long after they leave the venue. - The Brighton Magazine


Where do you come from? Where are you going?

When you are miles away from the place of your birth, can you ever feel truly at home?


This one- woman show tells the story of Sachi, a young Japanese woman, and her comedic, yet sincere struggle to find a ‘home’. Set in London and Tokyo, Sachi playfully relates the story of what it means to leave one place and put down roots elsewhere. Accompanied by live music and presented with magical theatricality, Cutting the Cord is a touching and poignant tale that invites people of all backgrounds to celebrate their own journey in finding home.
