DisplacedOrganised by: M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2018
Performed by: Ground Cover Theatre
Displaced has never felt more relevant than in today's context, where xenophobia, Islamophobia, and cross-cultural intolerance are on the rise. The play follows the story of three female immigrants fleeing to Canada during different points in history: Mary flees Ireland during the famine in 1847, Sofia flees war-torn Germany in 1947 and Dara flees Afghanistan due to the Taliban rule in 2007. Displaced highlights these three women's struggles to assimilate to a new country and its cultural customs, while trying to retain their respective traditions. The story is told through movement, original music and text.
Displaced was nominated for Best English Production and Best English Text at the Festival St-Ambroise Fringe de Montréal and awarded 5 Stars inthe Saskatoon StarPhoenix.
