La performance présentée ici est le résultat d’un atelier intensif de 3 journées consécutives auquel participe un groupe de jeunes Libanais, Syriens et Palestiniens. Issus de différents milieux sociaux, ils ont tous en commun une pratique du théâtre. Le workshop a comme objectif de leur transmettre de nouveaux outils techniques et dramaturgiques afin qu’ils puissent mettre en “jeu” leurs récits personnels.
