Carmen Aguirre and Pedro Kadivar have left their home countries for political reasons and later started to write theatre plays in their respective new countries. Aguirre is an actress who, as a Latina/Migrant, wrote her own plays in order to find roles which are beyond stereotypes. Similar to Aguirre, Pedro Kadivar writes and stages his own plays. Can theatre function as an ideal place for arriving elsewhere (and maybe for processing the migration experience)?
