The Arrival: A Theater-Education Approach

Workshop about Immigration – for School Groups

What is it like to leave everything behind and embark on a journey to an unknown land?
The graphic novel The Arrival by Shaun Tan is about starting anew. What challenges does a person face when they immigrate? Who can they turn to? What language is spoken?

Using theater-education methods, the students are guided into topics of foreignness and familiarity. The workshop centers on the perspective of arriving in a new country. They learn about the situation of people who have left or been driven from their homes and are now trying to start from scratch. The workshop includes a visit to the Libeskind building.
