ACTIONS - Yan Duyvendak Company
Raise Your Voice Festival, Technopolis, Athens - 8pm
A documentary theatre project on refugee reception, from every point of view.
Over the course of a performance, ACTIONS proposes to constitute an ideal democratic gathering in which asylum seekers, political leaders and volunteers of your city express themselves. By putting emphasis on the here and now, ACTIONS looks at the great migration crisis and the way it is depicted in the media from a different angle in order to focus on what only theatre is capable of: to gain direct access to the documentary force of various testimonies, to play its part as a forum within the city, and to help theatres, associations and spectators commit together. ACTIONS uses the theatrical representation and its tools (production, dramaturgy, direction and evening program) to divert them and put them literally at the service of a social issue: the reception of refugees in Europe.
A project by Nicolas Cilins, Yan Duyvendak, Nataly Sugnaux Hernandez.
