‘All of my relatives are lying here in the ground and when I fall to pieces, I want to fall to pieces here’ Shunkaha Napin (Wolf Necklace)

Taking inspiration from a quote from a Native American chief, Isobel and Anna Hughes combine music, storytelling and theatre with English folklore and the mythologies of their childhood in a lyrical exploration of displacement and belonging.  What is it like to be from somewhere? What is it like to have a voice, a land and a story that echo across generations? And in this transitory world, where few of us live where we were born, how can we know where the permanence of home truly lies?
