After the staging of the play “Last Frontier of Labor” about the life of kolbers, border porters, the audience chanted “End Kolber Deaths” for minutes.
The people of Merîvan showed great interest in the theater festival which is attended by 362 actors and directors from Rojhilat and Iran, and Brazil, Spain, France, Azerbaijan and Southern Kurdistan.
After the plays ended yesterday, a group of actors went into the market to do some shopping, but the people of Merîvan told them they were guests and didn’t accept their money.
A clown from Ukraine experienced this and said the following before a play: “I can say that Merîvan is one of the most special cities in the world. When we went into the market, the shopkeepers didn’t take any money from us. This is the first time I’ve seen anything like this. Thank you, Merîvan.”
