Weaving together powerful storytelling, spontaneous illustration, documentary video, and live music, Radio Live brings together inspirational personal narratives from around the world into a dynamic new form of theatrical journalism.
Since 2011, popular podcast and French radio hosts Aurélie Charon and Caroline Gillet have been interviewing young activists from Algiers, Moscow, Tehran, Istanbul, Sarajevo, and Tel Aviv about their hopes for the future and how they are realizing their dreams. Created in 2013, Radio Live paints a portrait of a new generation of change makers by bringing these voices together on stage to share personal stories and revelations. Amélie Bonnin’s contemporaneous illustration and video, along with live music accompaniment, combine for a unique radio-performance that frames moving conversations about harnessing the power of social change within a lively and experimental setting.
For Radio Live‘s New York premiere, Charon and Gillet have invited activists including Ines Tanovic-Sijercic, a Bosnian War survivor who is fighting against ethnic division in Sarajevo, and Gaza-born poet Amir Hassan, to share their moving experiences. A NYC-based activist will also join this rousing multi-media event.
