Life Long Walk (2014) 17:40

The video Life Long Walk documents a location theater project of a group of young asylum seekers in The Netherlands. Through working with images of their dreams, hopes and fears, the young men and women deal with their present reality as asylum seekers and their growing into a new country. Personal problems feed into the social process of making theater together. More importantly, however, the theater project hands them artistic forms to transcend their day-to-day realities and to give them voice. The eventual performance provides the youngsters with the opportunity of sharing their life stories with an audience. The performance becomes a stage for expressing optimism and hope of a better life.
