SEE THE TROJANS UK 22 PLAYGROUND THEATRE PERFORMANCE FILM AT:
Iryna (Ukraine 2022):
"Trojans is a magic that allows one to go out of your own bubble, tell your story to others, acquire new experience in acting, communicating and interacting with people of different nationalities."
Badhurry (Afghanistan 2021):
"Being a refugee is strange and complicated. It requires a certain process to integrate in a new society… I wish every refugee could experience Trojans and feel peaceful mind through performance and Drama."
"Every refugee has their own story, culture and values but most importantly we all live in a new society, with new culture and challenges. Finding and discussing common ground, through drama helps initiate ideas to overcome the challenges."
Nadia (Ukraine 2022):
"I hope that this project will help refugees overcome trauma and send a strong message to the world that wars and violation of human rights have always been harmful to humanity and to women.”
Our core aims are helping refugees overcome isolation, trauma, depression and giving them a platform to tell their stories to their host communities as well as building links and trying to provide new professional and personal opportunities.
"It was an extraordinary moment of connection across culture and time. It was a sharing of human pain, suffering, resilience, heroism and creative genius."
- Dr Kathleen M. Pike, University of Columbia,

TROJANS UK 22-23-24 - THE TOUR
TROJANS UK 22-23-24 IS A BRAND NEW UK-WIDE ADAPTATION OF EURIPIDES’ ANTI-WAR TRAGEDY, THE TROJAN WOMEN
18 months into Trojans UK 22-23-24, we're delighted to announce the success so far of our new, long-term, country-wide project for refugees and host community members. We are touring the Trojans UK through a series of community drama workshops. The workshops will help cultivate cross-community ties and give our refugee participants a platform to tell their stories.
This project is aimed at Ukrainian, Afghan and Syrian refugees, as well as any other migrants and host communities who wish to be involved.
Partnering with Chelsea Theatre, after two projects in the last two years, we are now embarking on our third Trojans UK project in London and are currently applying for funding for projects in Hounslow, Stirling and other locations in the UK.
Trojans UK is a brand new production of Euripides’ great anti-war tragedy, The Trojan Women, with a cast of refugees and host community members – including a core cast of refugees who have been professional actors in their own countries, and host community actors, with a chorus of amateur actor refugees and hosts from drama workshops. The multi-lingual workshops will also help the participants learn English.
Our aim is to have a London run of Trojans UK in two years time, but we are also working towards a London ‘mini-tour’ of the project so far.
