“A Day in The Life of an Asylum Seeker”
Ther Project” funded by the Department of Integration and facilitated by Annette Tierney began on November 7th 2009.
Using a story, written by, an asylum seeker, Adedotun Adekeye, as inspiration we spent several workshops developing and improvising scenes; discussing the content as we progressed.
Eventually a scene sequence was decided upon that included content deemed relevant and important to portray.
We also tried to include a balanced view which would allow audiences to form their own opinions.
The first performance of many was on December 10th and 11th in the Town Hall Galway.
