OPENING SHOW VARIOS
It happened in the heart of Europe, two flight hours away from Barcelona. Here we were cherishing the Olympic euphoria. They lived it a few years ago in Sarajevo. Suddenly, the television offered images from the concentration camps in Bosnia and Herzegovina mixed with the count of Olympic medals in Barcelona. In Novembrer 2020 it will be 25 years since that war officially ended, in which between 25.000 and 50.000 girls and women were raped as a strategy for ethnic cleansing. Most of the victims are Muslims, but there are also others who are Croatian, Serbian and gipsy. Their stories are identical, and most of the survivors live in silence, ignored by the institutions, and rejected by their own families. This play gives voice to the memory and the determination of such women and children and the sons and daughters born from the rapings to fight against oblivion, now that the focus and the cameras have left Bosnia a long time ago. For Bevenka, Milca, Meliha, the war is not over yet. The pain they feel is so heavy for them that, “there’s someone in the woods yet”(“Encara hi ha algú al bosc”). And we, where were we? Where are we?
