Description

You can be ashamed of many things. Of yourself, your family. Of your country, your President. Of your actions and inactions. This is what we, a Swiss/Russian duo, wrote three years ago. And today we are deeply ashamed – of Russia and its President. Following a journey through Switzerland, Russia and Pakistan this Archive on Shame explores seemingly banal everyday situations and painful experiences of violence and discrimination, against which a spectrum of shame unfolds. With live music and personal testimony this confronting show comes to Edinburgh in a changed world.
