NO HOPE WITH HOPE…
The voices from the Middle-East and Ukraine have arrived to the European Parliament!
It has been an emotional couple of days. There were tears and there was joy. No hope... With hope.

For all the support, for all the stories, for everybody who listened.
We are overwhelmed by all the positive feedback from our guests and from MEP’s of different parties. And we are happy to announce that we are currently planning a new event in the parliament.

PROJECT: NO HOPE WITH HOPE
The hopelessness of a never-ending situation of war, occupation and oppression
The hope for a better future
They will come from far, sharing their life
A voice for the ones without voice
The ones constantly following the news
Who got killed? Who got arrested? Where did the bombs fall?
The ones who lost friends, family in demonstrations, wars
The ones who also fall in love, marry, dance, get ill, love their children, eat their favorite dish
The ones who don't know what can happen in an hour, a day, in a week
Teatro di Nascosto is coming back to the European Parliament in Brussels for the fourth time! On the 24th and 25th of January 2023, we will perform in the parliament with the support of 16 European Parliamentarians. We organize two information days about the daily life in countries of conflict in the Middle-East and Ukraine through Theater Reportage, short films and conferences, with 30 young artists, journalists, students, coming directly from their territories where they live war, occupation, oppression and violence.
Diaries from the Middle East Conflict Areas
By: Annet Henneman
Diaries and reflections on twenty-three years of living in conflict areas: Iraq, Turkish and Iraqi Kurdistan, Egypt, Palestine, Iran and Jordan. It all started with a desire to tell about the daily lives of those living isolated in situations of war, occupation, oppression, through performances that put journalistic information on stage, the so-called: ’Theatre Reportage’. But this work did not only create a collection of life stories of the people met over the years, but also new family relationships, kept alive by continuously returning, with the joy of being able to embrace each other again.
Teatro di Nascosto - Hidden Theatre has developed the method Theater Reportage under the guidance of Annet Henneman: working and living regularly for 24 years in several of the conflict areas in the Middle East, trying to break the isolation of people who live war, oppression and/or occupation. It unites theatre and journalism in theatre reportages, letting audiences experience what it’s like to live in several countries of conflict in the Middle-East, giving insights and information one doesn’t find in the media. We are an international ensemble of actors working and living in Palestine, Iraq, Iran, Egypt, Syria, Kurdistan, Ukraine, Germany, Denmark, England and the Netherlands.
Become a friend and help us to tell about the lives of those who live oppression, war, and occupation.
