You can now RSVP for The Mediterranean Migration Monologues in New York!
On Thursday November 21, the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung–New York Office, together with Goethe-Institut New York and the Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility at The New School, is hosting a free performance of the Mediterranean Migration Monologues (in English with German, French, and Arabic subtitles) of the Bühne für Menschenrechte (Actors for Human Rights) in New York City.
The “Meditarranean Migration Monologues” is documentary, verbatim theater based on many hours of interviews, which reconstruct real cases of sea rescues in order to narrate from the perspective of those affected—both refugees and activists. The event will be followed by a Q&A with director Michael Ruf and other guests.
The activists are part of the project Alarm Phone as well as the German non-governmental organization Sea-Watch. They convince coast guards to search after people in distress at sea and train volunteers to rescue people from drowning. In short, they do what can no longer be taken for granted in 2019: They save human lives.
The event will be held at the Goethe-Institut New York (30 Irving Pl.)
