Chile in Focus - Part I (start: 7pm)
Stamford Shoestring Theatre: Widows by Ariel Dorfman, with Tony Kushner.
Launching for one night only for the Festival of Social Justice, Stamford Shoestring Theatre company will stream a filmed animated reading of extracts of Widows by Ariel Dorfman, with Tony Kushner
This powerful, haunting and deeply poetic play tells of the impact on the families of Los Desaparecidos, The Disappeared, in Chile after Pinochet seized power in 1973, but could just as easily apply to many countries around the world and the events happening today in Burma or China.
Event combined with Chile Awakens Q&A.
Chile in Focus - Part II (start: 8pm)
Following on from Stamford Shoestring’s animated reading of extracts from Widows by Ariel Dorfman:
Amnesty’s Chile Coordinator, Carla Torres, hosts a Q&A session about the current unrest in Chile and ‘Eyes on Chile’ report.
She is joined by Chile Solidarity Network founder Carole Concha Bell and Amnesty members Nina Patel and Jorge Diaz-Munoz.
