Silent Trade

Silent Trade

You wouldn’t know it at first, but it’s happening.

Amongst the immaculate lawns and shiny new Audis of a leafy Belfast suburb.

Hidden away behind the noise and the chaos of a rowdy student street.

Trapped in the familiar anonymity of an isolated farming town.

The quiet figures manipulated between houses.

The human beings exported and imported in a market that’s anything but free.

The Silent Trade that’s booming in the north.

Kabosh presents the premiere of Silent Trade by Rosemary Jenkinson – a deftly crafted and exposing new production unveiling the alarming rates of human trafficking and domestic servitude reported in the north.
