Voices Fredag 9 november – GEST
First-hand accounts of the asylum system and seeking refuge in a Europe closing its doors, in the words of people who have experienced it.
If your voice was heard, what would you say?
“The political system is treating the people as if they are numbers… it’s funny here in the migration system. When they distribute the people on the rooms they distribute numbers not persons. They are talking about numbers.”
VOICES consists of testimonies from people who have experience of fleeing and of the asylum system in Sweden and the UK, and who wish to share their testimony through VOICES. In the performance, actors will tell these stories to an audience that might not otherwise have heard them.
GEST is collaborating with Folkhögskolan i Angered, Support Group Network and ice&fire for the VOICES project. See more information about these organisations below.
Part of the ticket sales will be donated to Support Group Network.
