"YOU have them stay with you!" is a forum theatre performance offered in the context of the “it could be me - it could be you” project implemented by the Hellenic Theatre/Drama & Education Network (TENet-Gr) in collaboration with UNHCR Greece. The play debates issues such as solidarity, acceptance of “the other” and dealing with xenophobia. It addresses teenagers, teachers and members of the broader educational community and attempts to set the participants against personal and social attitudes, ideals, wishes and responsibilities, inviting them to intervene during the performance and offer solutions.
The workshop consists of three (3) parts:
- Part A: Games to warm up both body and mind introducing the tools and concepts that will follow.
- Part B: Presentation of the play “YOU have them stay with you!”
- Part C: In depth retrospection on the characters and the situations presented at the play. Initially there is open discussion among the participants in "breakout rooms" and the "hot seating" technique follows.
- Part D: The “Forum”, during which the play is replayed and the audience can intervene on stage trying, through improvisation, to empower the character who is in need and drive the story to an entirely different ending
- Part E: Unwinding – Feedback
“It could be me - it could be you” project is approved by the Ministry of Education and its activities are offered for free.
