The Caravan is a 30min participatory street performance based on eight recorded stories of Syrian refugees living in Lebanon.

Sabine Choucair writes about her personal experience working on the project on her blog which you can find here.

And lastly head over to The Caravan’s website here to find out more!

The stories are about love, discrimination, life and death all taking place within the last few years in Syria and Lebanon. They are told by men, women and children.

Four actors use The Caravan (a converted van) as their stage and the audience can join the performance at any time. The style is based on physical theatre, comedy, grotesque, big scale puppets and drama.

With The Caravan we toured 40 different Lebanese villages and Syrian refugee camps with two different casts ( Syrian refugees from the Bekaa valley and Syrian refugees’ actors). We also performed in  Sfax (Tunisia) as part of “Sfax the capital of culture” street theatre festival, kerkenna and Nabeul in August 2016. And as part of the JTC ( Journees Theatrale de Carthage) in November 2016.
