Guleraana Mir and I are thrilled to be presenting Home Is Where… at the 2017 Families in Global Transition conference in the Netherlands! Our concurrent session takes place on Friday, 24 March at 3.30PM.
Home Is Where… Finding Our Tribe Through Theatre and Oral History
Amy Clare Tasker and Guleraana Mir are creating a tribe of TCK storytellers in London. Since 2014 they have gathered dozens of interviews for a multifaceted project called “Home Is Where…” a live theater performance weaving together verbatim stories with a political narrative, movement, music, and multimedia. They have also created an Online Oral History Library and have plans to tour “Home Is Where…” around the UK and internationally.
After a short presentation you are invited to take part in an interactive workshop, demonstrating how theater techniques can be used to explore TCK themes with empathy, curiosity, and openness. This is not an acting workshop; no previous performance experience is necessary. Attendees will take away a creative lesson plan for exploring culture and identity with their students or community groups.
On this page, you’ll find:
presentation slides including video of our recent performance and audio clips from our oral history library
