Peirene title no 1


Olumide Popoola & Annie Holmes

A Peirene Commission - PUBLISHED AUGUST 2016

Displacement is as old as our need for home.

In the port of Calais, an illusion is being disrupted: that of a neatly ordered world, with those deserving safety and comfort separated from those who need to be kept out.

breach tells the story of the refugee crisis through six voices based on interviews with refugees in Calais. These stories uncover realities of fleeing one’s country by any means necessary. They demand to be seen, to be heard, to be let in. But can we ignore the fears of the ones who want to close their borders?
