Forum To Be Held In Place Of Iraq Show

Despite the cancellation of Camp by the National Theatre Company of Iraq, which was to run at IMPACT 15, we are determined to bring the cast to Canada.

In place of the Camp performance at 5 pm on Saturday, September 26 at The Registry Theatre, we will stage a reading of an excerpt from the play, and invite the audience to interact with the Iraqi artists via video conferencing and text message.

This will be a free event. If you plan to attend, please join the Facebook event.

It's worth mentioning three other IMPACT 15 shows that relate to themes of immigration, refugees and the middle east:

  • My Name is Dakhel Faraj is based on the true story of a refugee from Iraq who now lives in Kitchener.
  • Return Home, co-directed by Majdi Bou-Matar, tells the story of two indigenous women, one Anishnaabe and one Palestinian, who struggle to define their hybrid identities in relation to the land, exile and love.
  • Chess with the Doomsday Machine is an international co-production by artists in Iran and Canada, an original adaptation of Iranian author Habib Ahmadzadeh’s novel of the same name.
