The Body of a Woman as a Battlefield

Performance Dates
Opening Performance

In the aftermath of the Bosnian War, two women meet at a NATO medical facility in Germany: Kate, an American psychologist participating in a commission investigating mass graves and Dorra, a gang rape survivor– heavily traumatized and pregnant. Kate’s Harvard-trained psychology skills fails in her attempts to reach Dorra, who initially refuses to speak. After an evening of intoxication and liberating humor, casting out the demons of ethnic hatred, the two women form a bond and a transformation can begin. French – Romanian playwright Matéi Visniec explores the dark themes of interethnic conflict and sexual violence as a weapon of war with a provocative voice and bold political humor.
