When was the last time you were transported?

Together we will go on a journey across continents and years, down city streets, through deserts, over oceans, asking questions that echo through history. Transporter is a bold, spellbinding show, born out of a belief in the power of words to transport. Just one performer in an empty space, and an audience. An act of shared imagination. A kind of magic that happens... when you simply listen to a story. 

This is the story of a girl called Maya. A girl who is always thirteen. A girl who is always on the move. A never-ending search for the last safe place on Earth. 

Written  and  performed  by  Catherine  Dyson,  in  collaboration  with  Andy  Smith and Lewis  Gibson.  Co-produced by Theatr Iolo and The Riverfront.

Developed through our artist development programme Platfform, Transporter was written in Newport, where conversations with local young people inspired a story of universal and timeless resonance.
