Anne Frank Project In Rwanda, International Education Publication

Posted: January 18, 2013

Buffalo State theater students who are spending January in Rwanda visiting orphanages, wildlife reserves, refugee camps, and genocide memorials as an extension of the Anne Frank Project were mentioned in the article, “Intimate Proximity: The Human Face of Genocide” in International Educator magazine.

“The article really places us amongst the elite in higher education genocide studies,” noted Drew Kahn, theater professor and Anne Frank Project director who is leading the group along with humanitarian Carl Wilkens. 

This marks the third trip members of the Anne Frank Project has made to Rwanda. Along with Buffalo State students, the 2013 Rwanda trip team consists of alumni, faculty members, and donors.

The focus of the trip, according to Kahn, is to experience the multiple wonders of Rwanda, its culture, history, and people and artistically translate these rich moments into the storytelling process of devised theater. The team will be collaborating with Rwandan student-artists to begin the creation of a new play based on social justice issues of their choice. This storytelling foundation will be developed into a full performance in the Ensemble Theater course this spring. The final product will premiere at the Anne Frank Project’s 2013 conference and tour local high schools during the fall 2013 semester.

The group returns January 22.
