International exclusive to Gasworks. Fresh from an acclaimed season at Edinburgh Fringe, Gasworks is delighted to bring UK performer Joe Sellman-Leava and his one-man show 'Labels' to our shores. 'Labels' is a funny, moving tale about mixed heritage and immigration. Recounting his childhood in rural ’90s England in light of changing political attitudes and the ongoing refugee crisis, the performance melds stand-up comedy, storytelling and poetry. Shortlisted for Amnesty International’s Freedom of Expression Award, 'Labels' analyzes the way we use words, the line between curiosity and fear, and the rise of anti-immigration rhetoric. Amid the cacophony of statistics and soundbites that surround the immigration debate, 'Labels' offers an honest, human story about the bridges and barriers formed in a multicultural Britain.
