A touching theater evening about the connection between language, power and terror
The new play by Indian director Sankar Venkateswaran will have its world premiere at the theater festival. In an apparently open exchange, the actors enter the complex terrain of memories and eyewitness accounts of the Tamil population of Jaffna in northern Sri Lanka. They revolve around the fire of the central library there, which marked the beginning of a civil war in 1981. In a playful way, the production reveals the connection between language, power and terror.
