Launch of new drama-based education materials in Two Moons

The The Two Moons partnership has launched two new resources aimed at enhancing older persons knowledge of their human rights. These resources can also be used by educators to raise awareness of older people’s human rights among stakeholders, students and wider society.

The first resource is a documentary theatre script “Our Stories: Human Rights and Older People in Europe” created using a documentary theatre approach.  The Two Moon Documentary Theatre script brings to life, stories older people tell of situations where their rights have been infringed. The stories were collected by partners through interviews with older persons in Ireland, Italy, Romania and Finland. These interviews are conveyed through monologues linked together as a script for a play.

The second resource is the “Guide to hosting the Two Moons Documentary Theatre performance and talkback”. It outlines the process for hosting the Two Moons Documentary Theatre performance and talkback and provides information on the individual elements of the play and talkback which need to be considered from the planning stage to the production, performing and facilitation to the promotion.
