Droomreizigers II (24-04-09)

Droomreizigers II

Dream Travellers II

A village... in a not so distant past. People live in harmony with each other. but the town brings laws, judges and notaries. It strives for the ground. 'They build fences, we tore them down. They rebuild them... we tore them down again. It looked like child's play, but it went out of hand... just like child's play sometimes does...' A number of villagers organise themselves. They use violence, the town reacts with still more violence.

At the Feast of the Dreams there is a bloody confrontation. Dead fall on both sides, but more on the side of the villagers. A number of kids and youths that had been brought into safety by their parents, now return, looking for answers...

Dream Travellers is a free adaptation of the theatre play A la vera del camino of Arena y Esteras, our partners in Villa El Salvador, Peru. A story based on the testimony of Verónica, who at the age of seven, survived an attack on her village. She fled to Lima, and now, so many years later, she tries to find out what happened to her family.
During the months of rehearsing, we examined how a spiral of violence emerges. The presence of actors with Iraqi, Vietnamese and Congolese roots makes this question very up-to-date and realistic.
