Europe in the Dock
Saturday 12 May, 9am - 11pm
Join writers and human-rights activists from across the world at this live screening of Tribunal 12, an event that accuses Europe of human rights violations and the systematic mistreatment of refugees, migrants and asylum seekers.
Across the day there will be events livestreamed from Stockholm into the Playhouse auditorium. In between the live streamings you can also enjoy live performances and readings; and you can dip in and out at will – your £5 day pass is all you need.
The Playroom at the Playhouse will hold the day’s live performances. There will be a Literary Encounter with Edin Suljic, Ayesha Tarzi and Abol Froushan, who will discuss ideas of displacement and dislocation. Then Alice’s Adventure by Belona Greenwood is a haunting story of the Bosnian war produced by Chalk Circle. Goldsmiths’ MA Applied Drama Students have created two separate performances; Label Me Not and Charlie & Tami. Asylum Monologues, a series of first hand accounts from asylum seekers in the UK will be the final performance of the day, from iceandfire Theatre.
In the evening Arturo Dorado, Norwich City of Refuge Writer in Residence, will explore his experiences in Cuba and the human rights issues that are faced on a daily basis.
World Music will be played throughout the day and from 4 till 11pm The Anthropologist, Keith Slater and Richie will DJ.
From 12pm there will be a Barbecue in the Playhouse garden (not included in price of ticket), providing for meat-eaters and vegetarians alike. The garden will also play host to a specially commissioned work of art.
