CHARACTERS IN SEARCH OF A COUNTRY

The show has been presented in 2016 at  Suffolk County Community College and at the Goddard Riverside Bernie Wohl Center (647 Columbus Ave @91st street)

Workshop on Immigration at Bernie Wohl Center.

The drawing in the image have been painted by the refugees of the Oinofyta Camp in Greece. As it is explained in the video below, painting is a way to feel home and therefore feel better. We ask you to donate to People of the Earth, the organization helping the refugees, in order to buy painting material.

Six Characters search for an author to allow them to tell their story. In Kairos Italy Theater‘s version, the characters are immigrants in search of a country where they can tell and live their stories. Using the words written by Pirandello, in Italian, English and other languages, KIT presents a piece that reflects upon the contemporary problems of migration.

The Goddard Riverside Bernie Wohl performances will see the participation of members of the community.

In ENGLISH, ITALIAN and other languages.
