A reading of Judence Kayite’s »A Broken Life: In Search of Lost Parents and Lost Happiness«

As a supporting programme, before the Sunday performance of »THE COMMON STORIES«, there will be a reading of »A Broken Life: In Search of Lost Parents and Lost Happiness« by Judence Kayitesi.

In the 1990s ethnic and political conflicts convulsed the Balkans and Rwanda. Leaving deep scars in these societies, their legacies and narratives continue to have an effect. Genocide and war are over, but ethnic tensions still exist in all countries. Bosnia, a land divided forever? Rwanda, the land of exemplary reconciliation? Germany, a land of peaceful coexistence? This multi-national documentary musical production is based on personal experiences and efforts towards healing and peace in a shattered world. Collaboration by artists from the fields of music, dance, theatre and literature as well as the exchange of personal experiences enable deeply human stories to be told.

A co-production of Oyoun - Kultur NeuDenken Berlin, Mashirika Performing Arts and Media Company Rwanda, Sarajevo War Theatre Bosnia-Herzegovina. Supported by the TURN2 Fund of the Federal Cultural Foundation and the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media. In cooperation with The Grey Stories Ludwigsburg, Kunstzentrum Karlskaserne Ludwigsburg, Stiftung Entwicklungs-Zusammenarbeit Stuttgart, Partnerschaftszentrum Baden-Württemberg-Burundi. Funded by the impulse program»Culture despite Corona« of the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts Baden-Württemberg.
