Bond Street Theatre, a highly respected and also very innovative street theater company with roots in New York City but now running projects all over the world is passionate about applying fun to serious conflict and making a difference in the world. Their mission is "theatre-based programs in over 40 countries" to promote peace and mutual understanding through the arts.
The project that we are supporting this year is in Malaysia, which is not a signatory to the UN Convention on Refugees. Displaced people are therefore highly vulnerable and the target of much xenophobic conflict and violence. But Bond Street seeks to reach these communities through its young people, by means of the playful world of street theater.
