Red Soup

ArtsLab Western and North West Sydney

‘And I don’t know what home is anymore, if not a feeling. This terrible, longing feeling’.

In an exciting blend of performance poetry and theatre, Red Soup tells the story of two women and two invasions of Ukraine; Oma is escaping Germany’s invasion of Ukraine in 1941, and Jade is a serial home renovator, arriving at her next project.

Where is home when you’ve been running from it all your life?
