The New York Theatre Workshop Production. Presented in Association with ArKtype and Amnesty International. For Melbourne Festival. Malthouse Theatre. 11 to 14 October, 2011.
Crystallised from many, varied collected stories and individual experiences, distilled, then beautifully crafted into thematic theatre - Aftermath is presented as a collage of embodied stories from a city held to ransom, manipulated and violated. It is a story of communities/people/tribes set against each other by the invasion of external forces. Though didactic, the touch is light, enlightening, edifying and ultimately uplifting.
