In 2017, Reuters reported that more than 17,000 domestic workers are brought to Britain every year, 69% of whom are Filipino. 94% are women.
A moving and melodic response to true stories of migrant domestic workers from the Phillipines, Boses weaves together documentary material and original music to explore modern slavery in the UK's domestic work industry: an ongoing issue on the periphery of society.
Boses is a bilingual performance, using a combination of English and Filipino language to bridge the gap in cultural differences for an audience, and strengthen the bond between the women in these stories and the solo performer telling them.
