Detention Dialogues- UNESCO Spring School 19/5/21
May 19 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Detention Dialogues( revisited )
Detention Dialogues are a series of verbatim scripts which feature the voices of migrants from different countries and continents. Created as part of IceandFire’s Actors For Human Rights project, and in collaboration with Scottish Detainee Visitors(SDV) this piece of documentary theatre allows people to share their own story as told in their own words.
Testimonies tell of people’s experience being held in immigration removal facilities across the U.K. Their powerful stories tell of an uncomfortable truth which all too often goes unheard, the Detention Dialogues project aims to address this.
UNESCO’s Spring School has featured live performances of Detention Dialogues before but this year we are presenting the material in a new way- giving participants the chance to listen to newly recorded audio extracts and explore their resonance through a different medium. Participants will be able to share thoughts in a facilitated Q&A with Steven Ritchie( Director, I&F Actors For Human Rights Scotland) and Kate Alexander (Director, SDV)
