Syrian refugees in France perform their stories on stage
The average news consumer in France has a certain kind of image of refugees: downtrodden, often desperate people, sometimes violently clashing with anti-immigration protesters. But many refugees are trying to remake their lives in France, integrating into daily life while trying not to forget their past. And a French director founded a theatre company to help a group of Syrians do just that, while transmitting their stories to a French audience.
