Aschiana - A place for joy and practice

Though MMCC is going to be a mobile circus the project needs a fysical base for training etc. In a city where the rents are comparable to those in New York and still with no money – David Mason therefore during the summer 2002 started to look for a suitable – and free – place among some of his partners in Kabul.

Some turned him down without even trying to imagine the possibilities that appears when actors and performers enter a place with a single goal of making people smile and laugh. But in the child-center Aschiana things were different. Like five more Aschianas run by a local NGO, the center offers basic education for street-working children. Here Engineer Yousef, who is head of all the centers, imidiately could see the point. An unformal deal was done and the next day David Mason and a handful of volentiers started to repair and clean the room that from now on was going to be the base for MMCC and the sideproject ‘Takamol Theatre’.
