Darfur House


DARFUR HOUSE Four refugees from the Massalit tribe in western Darfur have been commissioned by Iceandfire theatre company to build a traditional Massalit hut in the grounds of the East London Museum of Childhood, to mark World Refugee Day. While they are working they reminisce about their lives and about building similar huts back in Darfur, while recognizing that they may have to develop a new building style, because these huts “can burn down much too easily”.
