BRONKS & Richard Jordan Productions with Theatre Royal Plymouth, Big in Belgium in association with Summerhall
as part of Dublin Theatre Festival
Following sell-out runs at Edinburgh Festival Fringe and London’s National Theatre, this multi-award-winning production comes to Pavilion Theatre as part of Dublin Theatre Festival.
In September 2004, the greatest of evils (terrorists) chose the greatest of good (a group of children) as their victim. For three days, 1,200 people were held hostage by terrorists in a school in Beslan, a small town near the Russia and Chechnya border.
Retold from the perspective of two fictional characters, a young boy and girl, Us/Them is not a straightforward account of this tragedy but is about the entirely individual way children cope with extreme situations.
Us/Them is a thrilling piece of international theatre created for young people and adults alike. It uses both humour and a matter-of-fact approach, combined with dynamic physical storytelling and breathtaking choreography to strikingly show that for children, things which seem incomprehensible in the eyes of adults have their own logic.
