Forensic anthropology and physical theatre collide in this compelling, kaleidoscopic show inspired by Latin American refugee stories.

Debuted at the 2023 Edinburgh Fringe to critical acclaim and multiple awards, REWIND is a visually stunning, deeply powerful new show, inspired by testimonies of Latin American refugees and migrants across generations. Drawing from the science of Forensic Anthropology as both methodology and a form of resistance, Ephemeral Ensemble combine energetic physical performance, dynamic live music and a distinctive style in a show unlike any other. Committed to remembering those who endured, and those who continue to live under authoritarianism, REWIND ultimately tracks back through time to reveal a universal story of the struggle for social justice.

Ephemeral Ensemble is a multi-award-winning Global Majority led ensemble. They make work driven by a theme or a question, which inspires them to find fact-based stories that shine a light on current hidden social issues. Collaboration between the artistic team, the community and professionals in other fields is vital to their process. Their work is political, visually striking, highly dynamic, thought provoking and moving at heart. They combine the high physicality of the performers, original music and playful interaction with the stagecraft to create a narrative. Previous shows include Carsick (Pleasance London, winner of New Diorama’s Emerging Theatre Company Program award, and New Diorama and Ideas Tap fund award) and Offstage (Edinburgh Fringe and tour, Lyn Gardner’s pick of the Fringe 2018).
