3x 15-minute long «actions» based on physical movement, lyrics, song and music.
Immigration and the mutation of our society have been among the more important issues of the last 10 years. The figures show that 1% of the world's population is displaced. 53.2 million people are displaced due to internal conflicts in their countries. Since 2011, the theater company Teatro due Mondi from Faenza in Italy has been working with refugees living in the local area in order to give them a voice. At the end of each of the week-long workshops, the ensemble and the students present a series of "actions", where the physical actions, lyrics, song and music reveal the deepest thoughts and experiences of the participants. In this case, the ensemble as well as Thomas Storm and Simone Thiis have worked for several weeks with young people from Glemmen Akropark with the theme "Inside/Outside". This time the «actions» will represent the voices of young people who, because of their origin, upbringing or social status, feel like outsiders in their own country. The «actions» are played at three different locations in Old Town Fredrikstad for a Christmas-spirited audience and will give a slightly different perspective to the traditional Christmas-shopping.
