The creative team on Ali will be fully professional and made of artists from the LegalAliens ensemble as well as new additions like the projection designer Edalia Day. But all the 17 actors and musicians are community performers.Since 2012, this company have been trying to reach out to the theatre sector encouraging venues and producers to recognise the invisibility of migrants and refugees in theatre and act accordingly. What they strive to create is “migrant theatre’ in the widest sense of the term, meaning theatre that doesn’t just talks about migration but theatre where migrants play a key role as artists, creatives and facilitators.Legal Aliens were awarded Theatre Company of Sanctuary in 2022.
