Human Cargo

  • Settle Victoria Hall Kirkgate Settle, England, BD24 9DX United Kingdom (map)

Matthew Crampton’s spellbinding follow-up to The Transports. A epic night of story and song from two masters of the craft. Human Cargo gives voice to past exiles- emigrants, slaves, transportees- to shed fresh light on today’s migrations. Featuring local stories from the Parallel lives project.  

Blending TED-style storytelling with folk concert, the show asks - does humanity actually evolve? Charting cruelties past and present, it delves deep into journey, migration and life.  

Beautiful, powerful, poignant and informative.
