Five years after fleeing the war in Sarajevo and escaping to Canada, Tarik Nakas returns to Bosnia - with his new Canadian wife - to face the family he left behind. With his sudden reappearance, those he left must now reconcile their love for their Tarik and their anger at his betrayal.
Return (The Sarajevo Project) is a unique international co-creation initiated when five Theatrefront members traveled to Sarajevo to work with an ensemble of Bosnian actors. For four weeks they explored improvisation, movement, storytelling and text exercises to create the story and characters.
Return (The Sarajevo Project) is a fully bilingual production presented in both English and Bosnian.
