This is a once in a lifetime project. By supporting us, you will be helping the people of Hiroshima to build a collective memorial to their annihilated city, and to do so together - with passion, creativity and drive. This project will also allow citizens from Hiroshima to speak to the rest of the world and to advocate against nuclear proliferation.
On August 6th 1945, the world’s first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. 140,000 people were killed in total and the city of Hiroshima was razed to the ground. This project will bring elders, adults and children together to commemorate an episode of their history that should never be forgotten or repeated.
Each year, Hiroshima hosts a programme of commemoration events, but this is the first intergenerational theatre production to be included within this programme and the first theatre project that has been created from interviews between children and survivors.
The voices and experience of 18 survivors will be intertwined to create a stunning portrait of community and testimony and will provide a sharp call to action. The stories that are gathered will be told back to the community in Hiroshima and to the world beyond.
