China Plate & Staatstheater Mainz present
We all have a nationality.
Or almost all of us.
Status is a show about someone who doesn’t want his any more. About running away from the national story you’re given. About who is responsible for that story and what might happen to it if you give it up.
A globe-spanning journey of attempted escape, with songs along the way.
Written by Chris Thorpe, developed with and directed by Rachel Chavkin
Commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre, Warwick Arts Centre and Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg
Supported by the British Council, Goethe-Institut London, the Collaborative Touring Network and using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
