"Monologues across the Aegean Sea" 

"Monologues across the Aegean Sea" is a collection of 28 testimonies of unaccompanied refugee children from Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, Morocco and Egypt. These children were forced to leave their homeland and arrived alone in Greece in 2015 and 2016, crossing the Aegean Sea.

Their stories were recorded in the book "Monologues across the Aegean Sea: the journey and dreams of unaccompanied refugee children", published in Greek and in English in 2016 by the Hellenic Theatre/Drama & Education Network (TENet-Gr) and the UNHCR Greece, (the UN Refugee Agency).

“Greek young people tapped into the power of the Ancient Greek chorus when they told the story of unaccompanied refugee youth arriving to their shores via the Aegean Sea. The commitment of these storytellers to share with their audience the struggles of refugee children in our contemporary world was unmistakable. I was deeply moved by their storytelling.”

“Greek teens took us all through a powerful ritual of empathy and solidarity as they embodied the words of unaccompanied refugee youth. I was struck by the clarity and care of their communication — and was particularly affected by their sense of purpose…their collective desire to take action in these challenging times.”

Andrew Kushnir, theatre playwright Toronto Canada
