Techfugees is proud to announce it has partnered with Requiem for Aleppo, a brand new contemporary dance work created and conceived by composer David Cazalet with choreography by Jason Mabana and featuring Juliana Yazbeck, to live stream the world premiere of the show in 14 different locations throughout Europe, the Middle East and the US.
The local live screening events are organised by Techfugees’ local Ambassadors, the Syrian Diaspora and refugees from Aleppo themselves.
By screening at set locations Techfugees aim to gather Syrians, refugees, locals, and individuals supporting refugees & displaced people across the world all together. These events also provide an opportunity to raise awareness and funds for a project we will be running in partnership with Syria Relief, providing displaced Syrians in Syria access to education via online MOOCs.
“We are delighted to bring the Techfugees community and partners together for a unique night and show solidarity to the people of Aleppo and the ones that have now been displaced. Requiem for Aleppo is an appeal to our common humanity, an expression of grief articulated in movement, song and design. It is a refusal to play silent witness to a humanitarian crisis” says Josephine Goube, CEO of Techfugees.
