An 'anti-passport' for a world without borders.
One poem, 2 illustrators, 10+ translators, 50+ performers, 8 stage adaptations, and grassroots associations in 14 countries, supporting refugee rights and universal freedom of movement.

Solidarity with refugees and asylum seekers

In solidarity with fellow citizens and villagers of the world who, with or without a passport, do not enjoy the fundamental right to leave their country or to return home (Article 13 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights), nor the fundamental right to request asylum from persecution (Article 14), the Passport performance also represents a call for action and participation. At each presentation of the Passport, members of the audience are invited to bring along their 'real' passports, or any other form of ID, in order to symbolically ‘renounce’ their nationalities during the recital. All documents are hung from a washing line or "voyagers' tightrope" on stage... and returned by hand at the end of the performance.
