THEATRE MEETS ACTIVISM


Nadia Murad (Yazidi woman and Nobel Peace Prize nominee), Rozin Hanjool (Women’s Affairs Manager, Yazda) and Hannah Rittner (writer of The Unbelievers) in a conversation with Rachel Browne (Staff Reporter, VICE News). The speakers share their responses to The Unbelievers, a play presented at the 2016 SummerWorks Performance Festival which explores the massacre of the Yazidi people in Sinjar and sex-trafficking of Yazidi women. Using issues raised in the play as a springboard, the speakers discuss the crisis of the Yazidi people and ways Canada can help. Presented by LACE Productions & Koffler Centre of the Arts.
