Family Stories (Porodične priče) by Biljana Srbljanović

In the wreckage of a bombed-out playground, four children are caught playing house; reflected in the funhouse mirror of their game is a thrilling and devastating allegory of a post-war society. A brilliant marriage of slapstick and tragedy, Family Stories examines the fear that results from living in a society without free media or civil liberties. Between the laughter and horror lies a haunting and intensely shocking portrait of the cruelties and atrocities of a country at war with itself.

The Valley of her sufferings by Zana-Hoxha Krasniqi

The performance presents the stories of women and girls from the region of Balkans (Kosovo, Croatia and BiH) which were used as an instrument of war during the wars and conflicts in the region.
The stories are true: they tell us the crimes, the missing ones, love and friendships in times of war and the strength to continue their life for themselves and the others.

Another Life by Karen Malpede

“Another Life” begins on the day of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City.  In scenes which alternate between brutal realism and poetic surrealism, the life of a family and of a country is examined. Based upon extensive research, the play explores and exposes how torture was used to create the state of mind that allowed for the invasion of Iraq and the war in Afghanistan.  But the play is primarily a poetic experience which allows the audience to experience the journey of six characters and their various levels of complicity or resistance.
