2019 SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW OPEN – DEADLINE: 18TH NOVEMBER 2018 Be Festival

Three Rooms by Sister Sylvester (Turkey / UK / Syria) – 30 min

Three Rooms is a hybrid live-digital performance that takes place simultaneously in Paris, Istanbul and the REP’s Studio theatre. The performance uses technology to cross both disciplinary and physical borders, and was conceived as a response to Europe’s continuing border crisis, which prevented the actors from traveling to either the rehearsals or performances of the original commission in 2016. The play uses Skype to overcome these obstacles, and to question the possibilities and limitations of technology to mediate absence. Actors Amal Omran (Syria), Onur Karaoglu (Turkey) and Kathryn Hamilton (UK) respond using theatre, multimedia and video. The show premiered last year at London’s Shubbak Festival.

Three Rooms was commissioned by Performance(s) Between Two Shores with the support of the European Commission
