WAKE UP!

First launched in the context of the "Voicing Resistance" Festival at the Ballhaus Naunynstraße, the WAKE UP! project produced a series of readings in Berlin and Rome. Young playwrights were invited to write short dramatic texts about the Arab Revolutions. You can download their texts here for personal use only.
