A STORY FROM THE SYRIAN CONFLICT

Syria has descended into chaos and Aleppo is besieged. Salah and Aisha have lost control of their lives, plunging headlong into an uncertain future. The Syria they hoped to change is gone, in its place violence and destruction – the arbitrary brutality of war. With the unexpected arrival of two Westerners, who have stayed too long in Syria and must now be given refuge, the fragile existence of the Syrian couple comes under even greater threat. How will they survive as they fall further away from hope, from what they know, and from what they used to be?

“We fight by staying in Aleppo. We resist Bashar by staying in Aleppo and not dying.”

Originated and directed by Benedict power, and scripted by award winning writer Rob Johnston, Spring Reign is based on real-life accounts collected from Syrian refugees, aid workers, activists, and journalists – featuring live performance, video, original music performed by Chris Davies, and frontline photography by Musa Chowdhury.

“Our aim is to tell a dramatic story that reflects the frustration and suffering of the Syrian people, engaging with a more personal human crisis than the one presented in the daily news.”
Benedict Power

Alongside our performance, we hope to raise awareness of the UK registered charity, Syria Relief, a non-political, non- denominational, non-governmental organisation, established to provide humanitarian aid to Syria, supporting basic needs, including food, medical assistance, sanitation, education and social welfare to all victims of the war. www.syriarelief.org.uk

“Spring Reign is rich with images, music, politics, stories, character, language, situation and relevance.”
Matt Fenton – Artistic Director of Contact Theatre
