Third Culture Kids: a documentary theatre piece needs your story Amy Clare Tasker, 26 January 2014 Third Culture Kids are people who grew up in a different culture than their parents, and have created their own culture out of many influences. I called this event to gather stories from people who have a complicated relationship with the question “where are you from?” Like I do. I loved hearing those stories, laughing at familiar experiences and ridiculousnesses, sharing difficult truths. Even more than that, I was deeply touched and surprised to find a community of people that is as close to “home” as I may ever come. There are more stories than is possible to recount in a report, and probably a report is not the best way to tell those stories - and they're not mine to tell, even though they were so generously shared. So we'll make some theatre about it, and make a space for ourselves in the world, outside of the tickable boxes. It will be wonderful. We will get together again very soon to talk about what this piece may be, and how to make it together. If anyone was not in the room today and is interested in getting involved, please email me: [email protected] or find me on Twitter @AmyClareTasker. Thank you, new friends. xo Amy Tags: verbatim, third culture kids, new project, interviews Comments: 1 Amy Clare Tasker, 27 January 2014 Here are a few more resources for TCKs: Denizen Magazine for Third Culture Kids.
