'Theatre of Witness' and Storytelling


The Theatre of Witness programme at The Playhouse Theatre and Arts Centre in Derry (2009-2014), developed by Teya Sepunick,is a specific model of performance that uses oral testimonies to give voice to those whose stories have not been heard in society. By sharing these stories on stage, the audiences are invited to collectively bear witness to issues of suffering, forgiveness and redemption. Theatre of Witness productions are performed in spoken word, music, movement and cinematic imagery.
