A project devised by New Dutch Connections’ director Bright Richards. From september-december, each week on Tuesday evening a different monologue is performed before an audience of potential employers. The monologues are based on interviews with refugees who have obtained a definitive permit to stay in Holland and performed by professional actors, accompanied by professional musicians who have a refugee background themselves. During the evening, a number of qualified refugees present themselves to potential employers and contacts are established with a view to possible continuation.
