Iraqi Children's Art Exchange on Annet's Voices of Baghdad


NEW!!!Hidden theatre's workshop

Theatre reportage: theatre for human rights 

Annet Henneman of Teatro di Nascosto - Hidden Theatre (Volterra, Italy)


PERFORMANCE: Thursday 3rd May, 8pm, Okinaga Rm, Wadham

WORKSHOP: Friday 4th May, 2-5pm, Moser Theatre, Wadham


There are boatfuls of people arriving into Italy, asking for asylum; there is a woman who has just been arrested a second time for her participation in the silent demonstration in Tehran in 2009; there are 250 people who have just been killed in explosions in Kirkuk, Baghdad, Karbala; there is silence in Sulaymaniyah because every outspoken journalist is in prison.


But these words can mean nothing.


Theatre reportage puts eyes, faces, bodies before the audience, because these are real stories.


Annet Henneman travels to and from Baghdad, hosted by and working with the women of Al Amal, passing through endless checkpoints to rehearse with the young actors in a city full of bombs; to Kirkuk and Sulaymaniyah to interview the threatened employees of an independent television station, take part in the joyful demonstrations of the Kurdish New Year.


She has just returned from Baghdad and Iraqi Kurdistan, stories from which will be included in her performance of Don’t Forget Us.



8pm, Okinaga Room, Wadham College


Songs from Baghdad, Kurdistan, Palestine, Iran and South America, each accompanied by true stories and photographs, including those from her latest trip to Iraqi Kurdistan and Baghdad in February/March 2012. Annet Henneman continues to use the stage to tell what is not being told.


Performance followed by Q&A with Annet Henneman

Workshops in theatre reportage with Annet Henneman (actress, director of Teatro di Nascosto)


Using verbatim and physical theatre techniques, with influences of Grotowski’s Theatre of Sources, theatre reportage is devised from interviews, personal testimony and improvisation.


These workshops offer an introduction to this use and practice of story-telling theatre.
