Czech Republic: New play by the Theater of the Oppressed at "Festival of Humanity and Solidarity" this Friday
Festival of Humanity and Solidarity, 15 April 2016, Rock Café, Prague, Czech Republic.
On Friday 15 April at 19:00 a new play by the Theater of the Oppressed, called "Lost" (Ztracená), will be performed as part of the "Festival of Humanity and Solidarity" at the Rock Café (Národní 20, Prague). The play was created by a group of people who wanted to produce something on the topic of the refugee crisis.
"After Nastia comes to the Czech Republic to study, the Russians occupy her home region of Crimea. The occupation means more than just the loss of her home. How will it turn out? We'll discover that together," said Dana Moree of the Theater of the Oppressed.
The Festival of Humanity and Solidarity will also include musical performances by the bands Džezvica, Létající koberec (Flying Carpet), Rajvosa Prag Band, Lukáš Burian and Marwan Alsolaiman and samples of Syrian cuisine. Proceeds from the event will aid people living in a refugee camp in Idomeni, Greece.
