About the performance

Somewhere Else is a performance that opens a topic about which we have difficulty talking. It talks about a little girl who finds herself in the midst of a war. Through her eyes, we follow the changing city, full of horror, violence and fear, but also – hope. Menacing planes fly over the city, the streets are empty and the shops have run out of food. Schools are closed. And every now and then, shots ring out really close. Her environment has gradually changed. It has become unbearable. The girl wants to go to a country where her life could be better. She wants to go somewhere else, far away from the horrors of war. "I woke up in the morning, brushed my teeth as usual, ate my breakfast and went to school. Everything was as usual. Even yesterday I played in the yard with my friends. Now everything is different. I’m not allowed in the yard anymore. It’s too dangerous. And when the thunder comes, I have to run to the basement with my mum. I don’t see my friends anymore. And the school is finished. They closed it."

Somewhere Else is a touching story about the senselessness of the horrors of war. What is the world of these horrors when we see it through the eyes of a child? Only through this perspective, can we fully grasp the pointlessness of war. Because such a topic is sensitive and painful, it often remains unsaid. But it is necessary to talk about it with the youngest ones.

Premiere: 11 May 2017
