Le projet Caravane

Être victime d’une guerre, être forcé de se déplacer dans son pays ou de devenir réfugié dans un autre, c’est peut-être entreprendre le voyage d’un itinérant. Portés par leurs rencontres, ils traversent les villages, se reposent à l’ombre d’un arbre ou sous une tente. Ils marchent sur des sentiers sinueux. Ils ne comptent plus le nombre de fois qu’ils ont glissé, qu’ils ont vu leurs propres enfants tombés sans pouvoir les rattraper. La méfiance qu’ils ont croisée à l’orée d’un bois, la violence du feu qui les a pourchassés, la sécheresse des âmes qu’ils ont visitées, ces souvenirs se bousculent dans leur mémoire. Mais qui entendra un jour les récits dont ils sont porteurs ?

Phase 3

Meet The (First) Cast

We began phase 3 (rehearsals) with an intensive 2-day workshop audition. The first day was pretty relentless: 3 hours of physical theatre games and exercises with a group of 30 young men (and one young woman!) in the heat of the Bekaa valley tent. On day 2 we showed up and our 30 actors had… Continue reading Meet The (First) Cast

Phase 2

قصصهم الشخصية، بأصواتهم

بعد بضع أسابيع من ورشات العمل وأيام من التسجيل، بإمكاننا أن نقول أن التجربة حتى الآن منشطة ومحيّرة في آنٍ معاً. التّفاعلات اليومية، مشاركة القصص، الثّقة، الإبتسامات والدموع... كل هذا قد جعلنا متأكدين من قيمة المشروع الذي يخلق المساحة للإستماع  والمشاركة بتلك القصص. العنوان الذي إخترناه بشكل عفوي "والعالم يسمع" هو الشعار للمساحة التي خلقناها.… Continue reading قصصهم الشخصية، بأصواتهم

Phase 2

Their Story in Their Own Voice

After few weeks of workshops and days of recordings, we can say that so far, the experience has been energizing and confusing all at the same time. The daily interactions, sharing of stories, trust, laughter, tears...all of this has made us certain of the value of a project that creates these spaces for things to… Continue reading Their Story in Their Own Voice
