WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In We Are Proud to Present a Presentation about the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as South-West Africa, From the German Sudwestafrika, Between the Years 1884-1915, rehearsal descends from collaborative to absurd as a group of idealistic actors come together to tell the little-known story of a centuries-old conflict in South-West Africa. As the troupe recreates the extinction of the Herero tribe by their German colonizers, their own stories, subjectivities, and prejudices rise to the surface. Tensions mount as the actors discover the limits of their good intentions. We Are Proud to Present… is innovative, fast-paced, funny, and a wholly unique take on race, empathy, and the devastating consequences of our best intentions.
