About this Event
Theatre, art & activism by young women in Kabul & Herat, Afghanistan.
Coming to Berlin in Sep 2023
Since the withdrawal of the US & the UK in August 2021, the situation for women in Afghanistan has spiralled into despair. Women do not even have rights to be violated. They have lost the ability to learn, graduate, fall in love, work, travel alone, go for a walk in the park, or ride a bicycle.
Under the Starry Afghan Sky are eleven young women aged between 15 – 23 living in Kabul & Heart, Afghanistan under Taliban rule. The collective evolved out of the work of Herat Online School founded by the Afghan educational activist Angela Ghayour and is facilitated by Rachel Karafistan of Cosmino Productions who has been working with the young women virtually from their bedrooms, since September 2022.
‘Ay Kash / ای کاش / If Only’ is a theatre, art and activism performance/exhibition featuring their artwork, films, poetry and stories, which will be shown at Oyoun in September 2023, in addition to three other venues in Berlin.
