Sandglass Theater Residency | Don’t Rock the Boat: A Performance for Young Audiences

For almost 40 years, Vermont’s acclaimed Sandglass Theater has been dedicated to the arts of theater and puppetry as a means of exploring contemporary issues, inspiring dialogue, and sparking wonder. The company visits with a series of programs focused around refugees. What does it take to get someone to safety? Join Sandglass Theater artists for an interactive workshop and discussion designed to engage audiences in the real-life stories and global political circumstances that inspired Babylon (Journeys of Refugees). Using an interactive board game format, cast members take participants through life in a refugee camp and the process of being granted refugee status. To portray the refugee experience and its inherent dangers, unfairness, and bureaucracy, Sandglass performers play the roles of border guards, smugglers, medical officers, and immigration interviewers who directly confront participants. Participants will experience the hopes, fears, discrimination, and occasional luck of people fleeing war and violence. Following the simulation, participants will engage in community dialogue about their experience.
