Peace Procession3: Standing Together
How do people stand together in times of hardship and war?
Peace Procession3: Standing Together is an uplifting and powerful performance, based on real stories collected from children of those who have experienced war and the Holocaust, Bosnian, Syrian and Romanian families, some of whom are now living in the North East.
Moments of courage, resistance, pain, love and joy during times of extreme hardship are brought to life by an international cast of actors and musicians, as we follow the lives of mothers, children, strangers and friends.
Building on 2019’s Peace Procession2, this new performance focuses on the stories of families, in particular mothers and their own and others’ children.
By standing together and opening our hearts to strangers, we can unite countries and communities.
Duration: 45 minutes. Suitable for ages 10+
Saturday 25 January, 4.30pm, Dawdon Community Centre, Seaham (tickets £2 including refreshments).
Tuesday 28 January, 1.30pm and 3pm, Newcastle City Library (free, no booking required).
