Pentecost play identity

  • Alexandra Vryoni

An identity for a theatre performance in Greece, by Vice Versa, a performance group of migrants and refugees who aim to break stereotypes and prejudice through art. The play, Pentecost follows the events which transpire when 15 refugees break into a chapel in search of asylum, each refugee performs in their mother tongue, in a Tower of Babel manner. The typographic forms are inspired by the movement of refugee, the shift between different languages and the cavernous architecture of a chapel. Outcomes include posters, leaflets and a printed publication/theatre program to be sold at the show with a view to raise money for the group, as the performance is free of charge for ethical reasons.
