Iraq - Impossible Theatre

Iraq - Impossible Theatre

Years of bitter sectarian conflict in Iraq make it difficult for people from different groups to speak to each other. The Impossible Theatre established a form of wordless performance that allowed people of various ethnicities, regions and religions to perform together. With Prince Claus Fund support, they trained amateur actors and toured remote areas of the country, performing in five cities. Their workshops trained people to set up their own ‘impossible theatre’ groups and initiate an ongoing dialogue.
