‘The Long Journey Home’ – 2010

In September 2010, Olive Branch Arts visited the Sahrawi Refugee Camps in South West Algeria.

Working with twenty young people between the ages of 16 to 24, the aim of this project was to give participants an opportunity to devise and perform an original piece of theatre. By empowering the participants to tell their stories and celebrate their culture, the long-term objective of the work is to facilitate the establishment of a permanent youth-theatre on the camps.

‘Sahara Libre’ – a documentary film by award-winning Director Greg Hall – follows the Olive Branch team as they create ‘The Long Journey Home’ with the young Sahrawis.
