Journey to the East is a Physical Theatre piece that follows a WWI refugee. Loosely based on Hermann Hesse’s novella, it is a meditation on the spiritual aftermath of war. In a stream of refugees, Herman is haunted by a spiritual guide who resembles a lost soldier from the front. Their journey takes on increasingly fantastical elements as Herman’s memory cannot reconcile with this spiritual voyage.
