- Michel Saint-Denis rehearsal space at The Other Place, Stratford-upon-Avon
The R&D work in progress sharings are a chance to see inside the creative engine room of The Other Place where the RSC explores new ideas and exciting theatrical opportunities. Our sharings for the festival include #WeAreArrested written by journalist Can Dündar. This is his enthralling account of his arrest and subsequent exile from Turkey following his newspaper’s decision to publish photographic evidence of covert arms dealing to Islamic fundamentalists in Syria. Can Dündar is one of the best-known figures in Turkish Media. Together with Erdem Gül, he was awarded in 2016 the Prize for the Freedom and Future of the Media by the Leipzig Media Foundation.This ground-breaking performance brings to life the words he wrote from prison.
