Documentary & Toolkit


The feature-length documentary “Acting Together on the World Stage” highlights courageous and creative artists and peacebuilders working in zones of violent conflict. It features theatrical works and rituals that support communities to configure new patterns of meaning and relationships. It includes three acts: Resistance, Rehumanization and Reconciliation.

The documentary is designed for students, practitioners, educators, and policymakers in fields related to performance and to peace and conflict studies. Dynamic footage of performances, rituals and candid interviews with artists and peacebuilders place case studies in their socio-political and cultural contexts.

Accompanying the documentary is a second disc, a toolkit with 18 additional short videos, and 18 print documents. The short videos expand on the material presented in the documentary. The print documents include guidelines for planning and documenting peacebuilding performance initiatives, discussion questions, policy recommendations, a glossary and other resources for teaching, learning and conversing.
