Iron-Oxide Ltd/ Edinburgh Mela in co-production
A risk-taking, water-soaked exploration of the universal need to migrate. This daring
large-scale outdoor production weaves together extreme physicality, a stunning
soundtrack, intricate imagery and strange yet familiar characters.
In a world of dangers, high seas and troubled lands, Cargo tells the tale of two
people and their quest for the perfect place to call home. Filled with adventurers, exiles,
conquerors and slaves, Cargo explores the primal urge of humans to leave their
country of origin, whether it be for a better life, to escape a past, for a new way of living,
or to find… themselves.
