Love is Underground
A play devised by Young refugees and volunteers in partnership with YMCA Cambridge
Acting now has been running a drama group for Young refugees at YMCA Cambridge. We have been working together for 3 months using physical theatre techniques, drama games and exercises to empower a group of young refugees from different countries.
Together we devised a provocative theatre play based on the participant´s experiences and stories. “Love is underground” is a powerful play, showing different life struggles, challenges and joy. This piece takes on a journey through warn torn countries, feeling trapped, travelling, songs, hope, love and reaching our dreams We presented the final performance last week during Acting now´s Christmas gathering.
All the Acting Now team, students, members from the different community theatre groups and other guests enjoyed the performance and gave really positive feedback. The young people who were part of the group felt really proud of their achievement and wish to continue doing further projects together.
