October 2007: War In A Time Of Love

- a theatre project for Kosovo and England

MULTIMEDIA Centre Kosovo and theatre nomad Kent joined forces this year to make a new piece of theatre. Luke Dixon travelled to Pristina with Chloe Gilgallon and Debbie Yearsley to work with Kosovan actresses Arta Seljimi and Anisa Ismaili and writer Jeton Neziraj. At the Dodona Theatre the group explored love in the aftermath of war:

After the chaos of war,

is there some space left for love?

Four women from different places and different cultures share their stories.

Laughter, tears and empathy for all.

The Kosovan artists then came to the UK to continue the project and gave an informal showing of work in progress at

The Roundhouse Theatre, Dover on October 17th.

The audience, which included Kosovan refugees living in Kent, joined us after the performance to discuss the project with the artists.
