THEATRICAL PERFORMANCE – CAPTIVES (EMBRIGADÉS)

Following a two-year-long collaboration between the CPRLV and the collective Les Pentures, the play Captives (Embrigadés) was created as an education and prevention tool geared towards school and community environments. Drawing its inspiration from real stories and real-life events, Captives (Embrigadés) permits us to see radicalization from a humane and intimate perspective, and helps create spaces for the discussion of both radicalization and the polarization of ideas.

The CPRLV provides the following accompanying tools as complements to Captives (Embrigadés):

  • Preparation workshop before the play
  • Guided discussion following the play
  • Educational guide

If you would like Captives (Embrigadés) to be shown in your community, or if you have any questions, please write to lespentures@gmail.com or info@info-radical.org

*The play is only offered in French.
