An interactive performance documenting a 23-mile walk from Dungavel Detention Centre to the Home Office in Glasgow.
Amber responds to the different paths people seeking safety might take in their migratory journeys and the difficulty of judging their need for protection based on the way they arrive to UK shores. The performance will be followed by a discussion with the artists and human rights activists.
