Never before have I reached out as an actor - so you can imagine my excitement and thrill. I will present a monologue about seeking refuge, my monologue being one of 5 different stories written by young people who have personally, or alongside there parents and families have had to move at a certain point in there lives. The stories all occur on a day in february 2019, at 16.07.
We here voices from a bed in Buenos Aires, a landfill in the outskirts of Paris, living room in Karasjok, a beach in Fukushima, a bathroom in the USAm and from a container in a coast in Africa. The voices all belong to young people who all want to leave. The share the urge of moving on and away with their lives.
