Tewodros Aregawe

Actor and facilitator, Eritrea (Amharic)

Tewodros joined Phosphoros Theatre in 2017 after seeing Dear Home Office in performance and recognising the stories being told. As well as performing in Dear Home Office: Still Pending he is developing as a workshop facilitator and has co-led workshops with Kate and Syed on the topic of Unaccompanied Minors and best practice. He has worked with refugee youth groups, Local Authority Education and Mental Health professionals, and audience members after our shows. He has also represented Phosphoros in interviews, including Thompson Reuters Foundation, Njambe McGrath’s The Hot African Podcast, and Canadian magazine L’actualité. He is a talented poet and performs regularly at Ethiopian community events, as well as at Bunker Beyond Borders. Tewodros is keen to have a career in the arts and in 2018 took part in the Phoenix Cinema Arts into Industry programme, and currently performs stand-up comedy at Camden People’s Theatre monthly as part of the No Direction Home project. Tewodros hopes to continue his professional development in the arts.
