The path of Little Amal
Step in Torino: Black Shadows
18th september, 20.30h. and 21.30h.
Little Amal represents 34 million refugee and displaced children, many separated from their families, and her message to the world is don't forget about us!
Over 4 months of travel for more than 8,000 km, Amal left on July 27th from Gaziantep, on the border between Syria and Turkey and she will arrive in November in Manchester (UK).
In Turin, Amal finds herself in a square surrounded by eerie shadows, frightened looking for protection and trying to escape. The big shadow of a dog which drives away all other shadows turns out to be a puppy that becomes her friend and that will accompany her throughout the rest of the trip.
The Turin step of Amal's journey is curated by Teatro Stabile di Torino, Torino Danza, Incanti International Puppet Theatre Festival and Controluce Teatro d'Ombre, in collaboration with Associazione Giuliano Accomazzi and Film Commission Torino Piemonte, thanks to the City of Turin.
𝙏𝙃𝙀 𝙒𝘼𝙇𝙆 is the largest traveling festival ever held in favor of the rights of refugee children.
