Theatre for Peace in Somaliland Film

Here is a film about our work in Somaliland.

The film has been made by our partner KOW Media and shows how the theatre troupe puts on its performances around Somaliland, how they constantly have to negotiate with village elders, religious leaders and the authorities in order to perform. IREX Europe’s Theatre Specialist Steve Grihault is also shown passing on Forum Theatre interactive skills to the actors. The film ends with some shots from the Film, Photo and Art Festival held in Hargeisa 28 February to 1st March earlier this year.

The film, theatre tour and festival are part of IREX Europe’s Theatre for Peace Project in Somaliland, which uses theatre to promote peaceful dialogue on community issues. The project, funded by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office, targets 48 Somali communities in the 6 regions of Somaliland utilising Drama for Conflict Transformation methodologies.
