mazloom2013 4-3 ratioThis short, powerful theatre performance incorporates immersive film footage to recreate the long perilous journey to Europe and the agonising wait for the life-or-death decision on their asylum claim.

Mazloom is based on the experiences of young Afghans, who as children were forced by war to leave their family and home to seek safety in the UK.

“Mazloom is a tender and honest piece of the human story behind an issue that is so often reduced to statistics and political manifesto soundbites.”
Hamish Jenkinson, director of the Old Vic Tunnels

Venue: Embrace Arts, Leicester, on Friday 28 June at 7pm.
