Idea Code 19260


Gathering together interviews, essays, rare archival material, and translations, 'The Tempest Society' revisits and resuscitates the forgotten heritage of a politicised theatre group ‘Al Assifa’ that was born out of the struggles of the 'Mouvement des travailleurs arabes' (MTA), Palestine, anti-colonialism, and workers’ and immigrant labour rights. Contributors explore the legacy of the group – placing this history in the context of the European economic crisis and its effect on Greece, contemporary migration, and the conditions of immigrant workers and refugees. With contributions from Abdellali Hajjat, Hendrik Folkerts, Pothiti Hantzaroula, and interviews with Philippe Tancelin, Bouchra Khalili, Omar Berrada, and Alexandre Kauffmann.
