The performance will be played in a Forum Theatre format where the audience is active and has a role in changing, criticizing, and redefining the play.
Prior to the performance, there were organized professional workshops in Yerevan and Istanbul on interactive theater skills and methods of conflict resolutions led by Jonathan Chadwick, Artistic Director of AZ Theatre.
The goal of the workshops was to trigger the process of change in identities and memories, and to lead the audience to humanization and emancipation.
