‘Storytelling Our Lives’ is an exciting new theatre production that
involves young people of colour sharing their personal stories of
immigration and displacement in a series of deeply moving and courageous
testimonies.

These performances are a culmination of a series of workshops as part of a
collaboration by No One is Illegal and neworldtheatre. The project and
performances hope to jointly contribute to bridging the gap between art
and activism by bringing into focus the individual faces and unique
stories of those who have gone through the migration process. This project
also draws upon the deeply rooted and central role of culture, creative
expression, and storytelling as key components of resistance movements by
providing a connection between personal narratives and global
understandings.
