The National Theatre of Northern Greece participates in the European programme Conflict Zones
, implemented by the Union of the Theatres of Europ
e, with Mike Kenny’s show Boy with a Suitcase
directed by Mihalis Sionas.
The CONFLICT ZONES | ZONES DE CONFLIT is a triennial programme and aims to detect different fields of collision that have shaped the political and economic history of Europe, the European way of thinking and the environment itself, from the First World War to the present. The programme includes festivals, theatre workshops and individual activities of the Union member theatres in order to raise the awareness of the artists and the public to the problems with which humanity is confronted today.
The Boy with a Suitcase was chosen as the only show that aims at a young audience and deals with the major refugee crisis issue.
