Eliot Moleba is invited to develop a new play for a young audience by The Federal Chancellery of Austria, in cooperation with KulturKontakt Austria. The thematic focus of the piece will be on (im)migration, illegal settlements and occupation. The work will explore how such a dense for-ever-contemporary political topic can be made accessible to a younger audience that is living in a world that is increasingly building walls to separate “them” from the “others”, rather than bridges – interlocutors – to help us overcome these differences.

As part of his stay in Austria, Moleba will also conduct workshops with schools, teaching and training teachers.
