East Side Stories

  • East Side Stories

"East Side Stories" is a musical based on the true stories and the many encounters with people living in the eastern parts of Helsingborg.

Dedan is in hiding. He fears that the authorities will find him. Or is it all just a misunderstanding? Well, better safe than sorry… Maybe he can find someone who is able to help him?
Sara and Eva will soon be graduating from elementary school. Will their friendship stand the test of time and challenges ahead of them?
Amira is at a crossroads: Should she keep the family together or dive into her dreams of a brand new future?
Nadia wants to protect her younger brother, but how?
And who is scared the most? The one that is hiding or the one that is spreading fear?
One day they all gather in order to find a way to chase the dark clouds away and to restore their strong community again. But there is something in the way - a child is eager to enter the world.

It is about the little things in life but also about the crucial ones. Some of them we hardly remember, others affect us for the rest of our lives.

"East Side Stories" is a co-production between The Immigrant Compound Confederation (Inva-Sam), Helsingborg’s education organisations joint project Tillsammans and Helsingborgs Stadsteater (Helsingborg City Theatre).
The project is part of The Ministery of Culture´s ”Kreativa Platser”.
