Human Cargo

Matthew Crampton’s spellbinding follow-up to The Transports, with folk singer Jeff Warner. An 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.


“Incredibly inspiring, deeply moving and ultimately inspirational.” Sean Cooney, The Young’uns


“Beautiful, powerful, poignant and informative.” Ilyaz Hajat, The Refugee Council
