Between November 4, 2015 and February 29, 2016, Canada resettled more than 25,000 Syrian refugees, following the outbreak of civil war. But what if war arrived much closer to home? What if Calgary became a warzone, and we were all forced to flee our homes and become refugees?
In this provocative theatre experience, Kawalease ACT (Arab Canadian Theatre) invites audiences to ask these hard questions, and see the world as a refugee. The Opposite, by Sleman Aldib, aims to help Canadians feel what it means to be a refugee, what it means to leave your country in a hard situation, to leave everything behind and start anew.
