A one person play offering “a portrait of a boy and a country”, followed by Q&A
This is first UK performance of Split/Mixed – a one man play that offers a portrait of a boy and a country.
Eddy, the speaker, grows up in a safe, comfortable, middle-class environment in Kigali. But everything changes when the president’s plane is shot down on April 6th 1994. Exploring what it means to be born to Hutu and Tutsi parents, and to grow up in exile this work explores the challenges of positioning yourself in relation to Rwanda’s difficult past.
Writer, Director and Actor Ery Nzaramba is Rwandan-born artist working in the UK. His recent work includes Prey (ITV/Red Productions), The Epic Adventure of Nhamo (Tricycle Theatre/Tiata Fahodzi), Blood Wedding, The Bacchae (The Royal and Derngate), The Snow Queen (Trestle Theatre/British Council) and When I Lived in Peru (BBC Radio Drama).
Split/Mixed sound design is by Helen Skiera.
