Theater at the Red Cross Museum27 October 2015
On the ninth of October we went to Red Cross Museum to watch a show about the life of immigrants and refugees.
It was a haunting series of performances telling the stories of people, real and fictional, who fought and struggled for a better life. An immigrant told us about the horrifying journey he had to make to get to Europe.
In a small room lined with exhibitions, a talented group of actors and musicians told the story of Soleman, a young man forced to take the journey across Africa into Europe.
It was a captivating tale, and the lack of props, sets, and space between us and the actors made it a truly exhilarating and unique experience. Overall, the performances offered a very different view of the lives of immigrants than the mainstream media, and the experience was touching and eye-opening.
