Human Rights play at Foss Center, Sept 13-15

SILENCE IS HEALTH

This site-specific play, written by Karina Cassiano, is based on official documents, testimonies, historical research and analyses of similar periods of political crisis and the consequent state of surveillance in Argentina, Guatemala, Chile, Spain, Germany, Ireland, Israel and the United States. How much of your civil and human rights are you willing to give up in the name of “national security”? What if things that only happen “to other people,” or “in other countries” happen to you? Don’t say you didn’t know…

The performance will start in the Foss Center and will run on the following dates and times:

Wednesday, September 13, 7:00 - 8:30 pm
Thursday, September 14, 8:00 - 9:30 pm
Friday, September 15, 6:30 - 8:00 pm

Seating is limited (30 per performance) and is assigned on a first-come first-serve basis.
