Us/Them

A dynamic retelling of the Beslan school siege where 1,200 children were held hostage by a group of armed terrorists. Told through the eyes of two children with humour and a matter-of-fact approach.

Us/Them

About Us/Them

In September 2004, 1,200 schoolchildren, their parents and teachers were held hostage by a group of armed terrorists in the small Russian town of Beslan. It lasted three days and ended in utter chaos.

Us/Them retells this story through the eyes of two (fictional) children. But it is not a straightforward account of this terrible tragedy. It’s a theatre production about the entirely individual way children cope with extreme situations. With humour, a matter-of-fact approach and dynamic physical storytelling, Us/Them strikingly shows that for children, things that seem incomprehensible in adults’ eyes have their own logic.

Ages 10-15 years

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Us/Them are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
