Migration – A Monologue

Liah Yecalo-Tecle has just completed her undergraduate at SOAS, University of London in Economics and Development Studies. She is now a first year
postgraduate student in Research for International Development at SOAS. The short monologue encapsulates the binary of different perspectives projected
into our everyday lives through platforms such as the media and discussions. Much to say, at the heart of this piece is a reminder that every person has their own narrative which can become blurred through the use, and deliberate choice, of language. As this pieces explores, language can be used in a harmful way to
homogenise and label migrants which can be disruptive in appreciating the detailed differences between individuals, their stories and intentions. This is the second time this piece has been performed- suggestions and ideas welcomed! please email 568119@soas.ac.uk
