We were proud to support the campaign to free Andargachew Tsege on Tuesday, working with his fifteen year old daughter Helawit to make a new scratch play about his case.
Democracy Activist Andargachew was kidnapped in Yemen a year ago and illegally rendered to Ethiopia, where he is currently being held incommunicado and facing a death penalty that was imposed in absentia many years ago.
Helawit and five of her closest friends made the new play in just two days, working with ICT's Artistic Director Ned Glasier, and performed it to a packed theatre at Platform, who generously donated the space.
We are hoping to develop the show further later in the summer.
