US/THEM (2020)

23 April 2020 – 26 April 2020 @ Studio Theatre, NAFA Campus 3

This performance was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Synopsis

In September 2004, a group of terrorists stormed School Number One in Beslan, Russia, taking hundreds of children, their parents and teachers hostage. The ensuing siege lasted three days and left many dead. Us/Them is not a straightforward account of this terrible tragedy, but an exploration of the entirely individual way children cope with traumatic situations.
