Sorry you are too late, this event has been and gone!
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.
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
