Leave to remain


Interactive performance

This is an immigrant’s tale.

It’s inspired by a series of tests that an immigrant experiences starting the moment he or she arrives at a British airport. It begins with a health check, followed by a police registration that all must undergo, and finally a citizenship test before one is finally granted ‘Leave to Remain.
