Meet writer and creator Lilac Yosiphon

From 16 October to 3 November, Althea Theatre return to London, following their US tour, with Jericho’s Rose at The Hope Theatre.

Lilac Yosiphon shares her thoughts on Jericho’s Rose and its themes on identity, displacement, Alzheimer, music, and, even, Brexit in this exploratory interview podcast.

Press ‘play’ and hear more about the Jericho’s Rose and the Hope Theatre in my interview with Lilac.

Exploring the experience of displacement from the dual perspective of a grandfather struggling with Alzheimer’s and an artist struggling to stay in the UK, Jericho’s Rose is about searching for a home that can’t be found. The show takes the audience on a breath-taking journey across continents to ask – what happens when you can’t remember where you belong?

The production weaves new writing and projections, movement, live music and loop-pedalled sound to create a unique tapestry of fragmented memories: the remembered, the forgotten and the rediscovered.

The Hope Theatre, 207 Upper Street, London, N1 1RL
