Welcome to the big city. Where rich and poor share the same streets. Where five very different people's lives converge and diverge, as they crisscross the city in pursuit of five very different ambitions.
If you ever feel you have to run in order to stand still, or see others gliding through life while you struggle to survive, or experience a relationship drifting apart, or a goal retreating as fast as you advance on it - then you will recognise life in The Capital.
The Capital uses moving walkways, bold performance and a rich soundtrack to turn its themes of financial inequality and strained human relationships into a vivid visual story told without words.
World premiere by Birmingham's own Stan's Cafe, who have been touring to international acclaim since 1991.
Inspired by ideas from University of Warwick Dept. of Economics.
Director James Yarker
