Polyphonic II - A Home The Size of Our Planet, is the second community theatre production commissioned by the MEITS Research Project with the aim to bring stories of everyday multilingual lives to a wider audience. This play is the result of a 6-month project working with individuals drawn from a dozen linguistic backgrounds to explore how speaking more than one language and living in a foreign country affects their lives.

Our first play, Polyphonic, was performed in October 2018 as part of the Festival of Ideas (Cambridge). Please visit these links to see a trailer and the full length performance

About the project partners

The Multilingualism: Empowering Individuals Transforming Societies (MEITS) research project is a major interdisciplinary research project funded under the AHRC Open World Research Initiative. Through six interlocking research strands we investigate how the insights gained from stepping outside a single

language, culture and mode of thought are vital to individuals and societies. For more information visit www.meits.org

Acting Now and Polygon Arts are both Cambridge-based theatre companies who work with a wide variety of community groups and organisations. We put social, political and civic causes at the forefront of our work and devise creative drama projects that breathe life into the important social challenges facing participants and audiences alike.
