“War is a matter of intelligence and stupidity. A genocide is a matter of the degeneration of intelligence.”
Theatre ENTROPIA presented in 2008 its new production “Genocide” for a limited number of performances at non-conventional theatre spaces in Athens.
21.15 at KYPSELI’S MUNICIPAL MARKET
TUESDAY 27/05 - MONDAY 2/06
21.15, at the outdoor space of METALLOURGEIO
The multi-media performance is a result of the dramaturgical composition & elaboration of texts on the dark and irrational phenomenon of Genocide, inspired by the two formidable books by the French journalist, Jean Hatzfeld, about the massacres in Rwanda. The books are both a study and a rare documentation – with authentic, first-person narratives and confessions by the survivors, as well as the killers.
Within the fluid landscape of successive video projections, which refer both to earlier genocides and barbarities suffered today, in a dialectic relation to the extreme physicality of the actors, this contemporary Chorus of the five performers, who constantly alternate in the roles of killers and victims, unfold their stories.
