Twenty-three years after the multi award-winning Carmen Funebre, the acclaimed TBP present the sequel. While Carmen explored the impact of war on civilians with the Bosnian conflict as the focus, Silence picks up the story of refugees caught in a spiral of violence and with dreams of escape. Why do those who flee expose themselves to the dangers and humiliation of displacement? And why do atrocities in the Middle East and the exodus to "safety" in Europe evoke such fear among Europeans? This politically charged outdoor production uses pyrotechnics and stunning physicality to create extraordinary, memorable images.
