“Criminal Justice Theater.” Theatrical staging with students on legally controversial cases: Tragedy “honor killings”

Dr. El-Ghazi (Faculty 06: Law)

The opportunity to experience oneself in role plays and new contexts, in movement and through language prompts reflection on one's own and others’ worlds. In the interdisciplinary project, students worked together with a drama teacher on staging a theatrical performance dealing with a legally and socially precarious criminal offense (honor killings).
