Where We Are: The Mosque

Sonder: being caught by the feeling that everyone around you has rich, complex interior lives with their own stories, own histories and own futures.

Anima Theatre Company are proud to present Where We Are an exciting new experiment in storytelling.

Four of London’s finest emerging writers have been sent to respond to the women’s section of Suleymaniye Mosque, Hackney with nothing but this advice: don’t write what you know, but find out what you don’t.

Beginning their work from whatever they find, these four unusual personal stories are woven together and performed as one play. In the process, Where We Are, becomes a compelling and honest portrait of a unique community of people collected under one roof.

And it might just make you sonder.
