CREATING A PLATFORM FOR SYRIAN REFUGEES TO TELL THEIR OWN STORIES THROUGH DRAMA
The Trojan Women Project has been creating joint therapeutic drama and advocacy projects for Syrian refugees in Jordan, Europe and the UK since 2013. We also make documentaries about our projects so as to allow the voices of our participants to be heard as widely as possible.
In the weekly workshops, Terra Incognita will use drama, games, movement, writing, discussion, and art to explore the themes of exile, refuge, home and war. We will share memories of Syria and experiences of living in Glasgow. It will be a supportive environment in which to meet and share with others who have experienced similar predicaments. For those participants who are willing, there will be a chance to create a new production of Euripides’ great anti-war play The Trojan Women, combining the historical text with personal stories and memories in a major new production!
