Screening and Discussion: Acting Together On the World Stage

31 Mar 2014
Venue: The Factory
Talk / Workshop

This award-winning feature documentary, co-created by Cynthia Cohen and filmmaker Allison Lund, highlights courageous and creative artists and peacebuilders working in conflict regions, describes exemplary peacebuilding performances and offers tools for the creative transformation of violence.

Acting Together on the World Stage grows out of a seven-year initiative of Theatre without Borders, Brandeis University and filmmaker Allison Lund. The film includes vivid first-hand accounts of traditional and non-traditional performances in Argentina, Serbia, Uganda, Peru, the United States (New Orleans), Australia and Cambodia. Stories are told by artists, conflict resolution practitioners, and scholars who work directly with communities struggling to make sense of their past, heal their present wounds, and build a common future.

The screening will be followed by a round table discussion with Cynthia Cohen (Brandeis University, Boston), Director of the Program in Peacebuilding and the Arts.

This is a free event but booking is essential.
