Once again, Penguins head for Germany and Belgium, to perform to the many children waiting in refugee centers.
Dates: 9th to 19th July 2016
Where? Berlin and Cologne, Germany, and Walloon region, Belgium
What to do? We brought many music and drama activities to children in refugee shelters and other charities. Tens of thousands of people are stranded in refugee camps in Germany and Belgium, sometimes for over half a year, waiting to hear if they can stay in the country. Parents are very anxious, and the children often hold their parents’ angst. Laughter, music, and theatre are vital to them – and that’s where we step in!
The team: Ten students from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama: Friederike, Julia, Ilar, Joe, Ruth, Tom, Ellis, Tegen, Elisabeth, Essa.
