Text, video, direction: Josse De Pauw
Strange News tells the story behind the news – about youths drawn into militias and gangs, about the associated violence and terror, about forces breaking down the ability to feel – and finally the path to healing and empathy. Norwegian composer Rolf Wallin, Director Josse De Pauw and Ugandan actor Arthur Kisenyi join Aventa in the presentation of this work, which features video, live electronics, surround sound and the participation of local media.
“a War Requiem for the modern day, one which held the audience stunned – until the standing ovation at the end.” – Christopher Morley, Birmingham Post
