Filmed in multiple locations from Morocco to Manchester In Transit traces the primary western migration route across the Mediterranean to Europe. Produced in collaboration and through a series of conversations with British based asylum seekers and refugees at The Boaz Trust Manchester. The artist embodies the positions adopted by a migrant ‘in transit’ and performs these movements within the public realm in site specific locations. The perfomances are recorded on HD Video and presented as a moving image installation with sound.
