‘Storytelling Our Lives’ is an exciting new theatre production that
involves 5 young people of colour sharing their personal stories of immigration and displacement.

These performances are a culmination of a series of workshops as part of a collaboration by No One is Illegal and neworldtheatre. The project and performances hope to jointly contribute to bridging the gap between art and activism by bringing into focus the individual faces and unique stories of those who have gone through the migration process. This project also draws upon the deeply rooted and central role of culture, creative expression, and storytelling as key components of resistance movements by providing a connection between personal narratives and global understandings.

No One is Illegal-Vancouver is a grassroots anti-colonial migrant justice group taking action on combating racism, colonialism, deportations, detentions, wage-slave conditions, and security measures in the context of the so-called "War on Terrorism."

neworldtheatre is a Vancouver-based theatre company which creates, develops, produces and tours politically and culturally charged plays that investigate intersections between communities and peoples.

This project has been facilitated by Carmen Aguirre.
