Skimstone Arts presents Peace Process-ion2, a site specific 20 minute repeated performance that responds to stories we have collected from children of Holocaust survivors, Bosnian, Syrian and Roma refugee communities about being ‘Torn from Home.’
The performance responds to themes of human acts of kindness, bravery and resilience in times of human madness. It’s about finding identities, connections and hope in a new land and place.
Using live music, soundtracks, theatre and procession, Peace Process-ion2 invites you to stop and look, reflect, or even choose to join the procession.
Skimstone Arts would like to give their deepest thanks to all those who shared such powerful stories, including Smajo Beso, Balsam Ahmed and Marta Josephs, and to our diverse cast, which enabled us to create this work.
