Since 2015 we have run weekly workshops in two asylum centers in Asker where the main aim is to use theatre as a tool for integration.
The participants are in the age 3 – 70 years, and we run workshops, programme, performances and have concerts for and with the people living in the center.
The people living in the asylum center come from all over the world. Some stay there for a short period, and some have stayed there for more than 15 years. Some will later live in the municipality, and some will have to leave the country. With our work we want to give the inhabitants equal possibilities to integrate in the society until their future life is decided.
Most of the activities are run in the center, but we also give some public performances with the inhabitants or visit other cultural activities.
