"You know Peter, when I close my eyes I can see my country. I can see my village. I can see my people..."

Centre Stage Reviews ⭐⭐⭐⭐: “Tonight I laughed, I learnt, I travelled.” 

A backflip in time, a quick hop back home, with humour and visual poetry, Mohand & Peter will  take you on a road trip through Sudan.

Bouncing on one of the toughest international news of the decade, the two brave clowns fight horror with laughter and build a magnificent pedestal for Mohand's home country.

THE TRAILER

DIRECTOR'S NOTE

"Every day for the past 5 years since we created Borderline, I witnessed how much my cast miss their homes. I saw pictures of beautiful lakes, mountains, and ancient buildings; Videos of family gatherings, birthdays, and silly cats. I Facetimed brothers, sisters, but also nieces and nephews. Those kids that we spoil at weekends but that the people I work with have never held in their arms because they are not allowed to go back. Not for a wedding, not for a funeral, never. Their country is not just a war zone or a Talibans’ nest, it’s their homes. With Mohand & Peter, we aim to celebrate them."  Sophie Bertrand Besse (director)

"Mohand & Peter changes the conversation about refugees and migration in unexpected, moving and hilarious ways. It is the perfect show for Britain, and the world, right now. "
