Abstract

This R&D project will engaged with groups of asylum seekers/ refugees in the East Midlands and create a digital operatic performance with and about their stories. In the spirit of Cardboard Citizens we engaged with refugees/ asylum seekers in a life-changing experience through auto-ethnographic story-telling in the digital creative play space Pop-Up-Play. These stories will form the dramaturgy for a Digital Opera performance for the public and school children in a life-changing experience through the empathic understanding of the stories of refugees/ asylum seekers in the Leicester area.
