About this show

Moved to respond to the July 1995 Bosnian Massacre, Europe's worst mass murder of civilians since World War II, acclaimed French multimedia artist Olivier Py created Requiem for Srebrenica, a theatrically riveting meditation on the unfathomable terrors of war. Three women from three generations, dressed in heavy black coats and boots, occupy a starkly industrial steel set. Stand-ins for the thousands of women who lost sons, husbands, lovers, and fathers, they speak harrowing, often numbingly barbaric words from a meticulously assembled pastiche of poems, essays, and news and medical reports. This production, presented in French with English surtitles, is part of BAM's Next Wave Festival.
