Birmingham 2022 Festival presents BOSA, with Notnow Collective Viewings 12th to 16th July

A Creative City project generously supported by Birmingham City Council.

BOSA (barefoot) is a story of leaving an old home and arriving in a new place. Whether moving from a village to a busy city, from one neighbourhood to another, or from one country to a completely new one across the continent, we all have experience creating new homes.

BOSA means barefoot in Croatia, as we were exploring the sensations of being comfortable and safe in a place where we feel ‘at home’.

The audience is taken on an immersive audio experience, listening to a story of one woman leaving her home and building a new life in a new place. But is it possible to ever settle? Or do we constantly compare things to our old home? A sound coming from a busy open market takes us on a memory lane, back to the grandma’s garden where chickens fight and one has to find shade from the intense sun. This is also a story about
caring for others and working selflessly to make others safe and comfortable. And how can caring for others help us in settling in? What does it mean to greet
the neighbour in the morning, take off shoes when we reach home and have
a cup of tea? How do we (you) create rituals of settling in?

The Gala Pool, Moseley Road Baths.

3pm, 4.30pm. 6pm & 7.30pm.
The duration of the performance will be 40mins
