Following weeks of rehearsals, this production is shaping up to be a highlight of this special celebratory year of both their 15th birthday and years since The Lord Chamberlain's Men were first formed. We captured some of the magic in rehearsals, giving audiences a small insight into what to expect Pitch up with a chair and bring a picnic if you like. The buzz that the Festival brings to Brighton during May is electric!
I feel it myself and so does everyone I speak to about it. We have a lot of visitors who stay in our properties throughout the Festival because they are attending events. They are amazed at the choice and variety and always say they will be back again next year. Interested in becoming a Brighton Festival sponsor? Recently, I had the privilege of seeing Flight, an intricate moving diorama created and performed by Glasgow based company, Vox Motus. However, having only read outstanding reviews, I knew I was going to be immersed in something different from anything I had seen before.
At the beginning, different groups were taken into a room to wait before each person was taken to their individual seat inside a dark cubicle. I was given headphones with soft music playing, and instructions to get close. Immediately, the experience became incredibly personal. It began by introducing Aryan and Kabir, two Afghan brothers at the start of their ambitious journey from Kabul to London.
I was immediately drawn into a miniature world of carefully created wooden figures arranged into elaborate scenes.
The figures of Aryan and Kabir were depicted travelling by boat, train, on foot, and in the backs of lorries as they battle storms, imprisonment, and various other extreme situations that many migrants face. Each scene was crafted with the utmost intent. Simple images with purposeful lighting established each setting beautifully.

Gripping sound effects accurately established the mood of each scene, whether dreamlike or eerie. Additionally, childlike voices truly made this experience both genuine and imaginative. In addition, sitting in a rotating chair made it more of an interactive experience, as I was able to move with the models as they drifted past. Vox Motus have succeeded in turning an awful reality into a poetic tragedy, both poignant and heart wrenching. In just an hour, Flight emotively illustrates themes of economic migration, modern-day slavery, sexual abuse, capitalism, and hope.
The exhaustion and hardship the boys face during their gruelling two-year journey attempting to cross borders into Europe is incredibly realistic. One aspect that particularly stood out to me was the creative decision to depict border control guards as seagulls; their loud dissonant squawking in place of speech — entirely unintelligible to the poor protagonists in an allegory for the French-Afghan language barrier — profusely exemplified the fright and anxieties they felt losing their liberty. The sympathy this draws is heart-wrenching. The story is mercilessly immersive, forcing the viewer to involve themselves in the plight of young refugees in a way that media coverage can never do.
Vox Motus have created a microscopic world to portray issues far bigger and provide an extremely confrontational experience. It becomes almost hard to believe that you are watching miniature models instead of real people. My expectations were exceeded, and I was left speechless.
I would highly recommend seeing Flight, it was truly unforgettable. For your chance to see this unique show during its run at Brighton Festival, visit the Flight event page. Book now to see Flight at Brighton Festival. One day Maya packs her bag, ready to say goodbye to her home.

She is on fire right now and her new album is amazing. What impact do you think the Festival has for visitors, Brighton residents and for you? There is so much energy in the city in May. Everyone comes out to play and to explore, enjoying the longer days and the sunshine.
People are more adventurous and willing to try new things. Brighton Festival has always stood for internationalism and experimentation. It brings artists from all over the world to be here in dialogue with our city and residents. Flight is based on the novel Hinterland by Caroline Brothers. It tells the story of two young brothers travelling alone, on foot, from Afghanistan to London. Their journey is an odyssey: a tale of ever-changing fortunes that is in turns life affirming and horrifically brutal. It is a tale of love, brotherhood, the remarkable resilience of those fleeing turmoil, and the power of imagination.
Flight is a unique audience experience. Audience members sit in individual booths as a series of handmade diorama revolve before their eyes. The story and soundtrack unfold through a pair of headphones. Flight is rewarding on so many levels. The story is current, relevant and heart-wrenching. The experience is individual and immersive. Over the years that we developed Flight the narrative around refugees and asylum seekers in the UK became increasingly divisive and agenda-driven.
We wanted to find a storytelling form that would bring this back to the truly personal: just you the audience and the brothers journeying together. Our world in miniature was born out of desire to create a one-to-one experience that played with form, challenged us as artists, and enriched the story and themes. We wanted to make something that was full of imagination that honoured the bravery and resilience of children who flee their homes in search of a safe haven.
The sound design and sound-track are also exceptional in their own right and open the experience up to music audiences. It is a brilliant show for teenagers, and we can provide some excellent resources for teachers to encourage class discussions around the subject matter. We have found that audiences have been completely floored by the emotional impact of the story. Still I Rise is about resilience, equality, being unapologetic for who you are, and rising. Expect a powerful, absorbing and emotive show. Award-winning artist Seeta Patel and choreographer Lina Limonsi join forces, creating a one-woman politically charged dance blending classical Indian dance Bharatanatyam and contemporary dance.
The programme focuses on the theme of exile and displacement.
We have used 16th century music to create a new work of art by adding texts based on first-hand accounts by contemporary migrants. These will be interspersed with music from Syrian-born Oud player Rihab Azar. The programme will be accompanied by projections and specially designed lighting, to give a unique and immersive experience, culminating in a work written specially for Stile Antico and Rihab Azar by the legendary composer Giles Swayne. This show will be a unique fusion of old and new music, a conversation between Eastern and Western cultures, exploring one of the most urgent issues of our times.
