UN:IMAGINABLE - Bosnia-Herzegovina and Rwanda

Our histories in conversation

_a musical documentary performance on the soundtracks of war_

UN:IMAGINABLE is an incomparable theater production that emerged from the lived reality of trauma, war, segregation and exile. Ethnopolitical conflicts shook the Balkans and Rwanda in the 1990s. To this day, their traces are deeply woven into their societies, their testimonies and stories continue to have an impact. Genocide and war are over, but ethnic tensions persist in all countries. Bosnia, the forever divided country? Rwanda, the land of exemplary reconciliation? Germany, the land of peaceful coexistence?

"In a monochrome universe holding the promises of an uncertainty,
The future is upon us
like an unwritten book
To one thing we must all look
What is it that can change now.”
Hope Azeda

The multinational, documentary music theater is based on personal experiences and the quest for healing and peace in a broken world. Through the collaboration of artists from the fields of music, dance, theater and literature and through the exchange of personal experiences, stories are told that are deeply human.
