Abu-Zayd DeGale,is a refugee from Sudan. He works as a nightclub doorman in Newcastle to support his family. Now he’s had enough of verbal abuse, racism and the threat of violence at his workplace.

Living in Limbo uses storytelling, spoken-word and song to map Abu-Zayd’s life in Sudan and his journey to Newcastle, demystifying the myths around refugees and confronting his own demons along the way. It shows how art can get you into trouble but also save your life. A funny and moving personal story that also reflects on the urgency of the present situation in Sudan and explores the key themes of identity, belonging and control.

Organiser

Alphabetti Theatre

Alphabetti Theatre is based in Newcastle Upon Tyne and was created by Ali Pritchard in 2012. We create, produce, and programme new, original work from emerging artists across the performing arts, championing work in Music, Theatre, Comedy and Poetry. We strive to make theatre that is relatable and accessible to all, and are constantly looking for new ways to challenge ourselves, physically, mentally and conceptually – we believe that by challenging ourselves we inevitably challenge the audience, creating engaging and original experiences.
