Our collaborators, the Dollardaddy Theatre Group from Budapest, Hungary, are working on a theatre play inspired by the memory stories collected in our ongoing Recollect/Reconnect project. The play will open in Hungary at Trafo Theatre on Budapest on the 22nd of September 2020 together with a small exhibition . The play will travel to Tampere Workers Theatre to be performed between 10-12th of February 2021. At the same time a large exhibition in the Finnish Labour Museum Werstas will open and will be on display until October 2021. The play will be performed last at the Comparative and International Society’s conference in Seattle on the 25th of April 2021. It will then be transformed into a TV drama and recorded for open access view.

February 2020, our advisory board and Dollardaddy Theatre company warms up for the play’s character creation from memory stories of childhood we have collected as part of the Recollect / Reconnect project.
