"We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as Southwest Africa, From the German Südwestafrika, Between the Years 1884–1915." uses the timeless tool of a play within a play to explore issues still relevant today.
Performances are October 25, 26, 30, 31 & November 10 at 7:30 p.m. and November 11 at 2 p.m. Join us for a Talk Back after the October 25th performance.
"We Are Proud to Present..." takes place largely in a rehearsal room that descends from collaborative to absurd as a group of idealistic actors—three black and three white—attempt to recreate the extinction of the Herero tribe at the hands of their German colonizers. Eventually, the full force of a horrific past crashes into the good intentions of the present, and what seemed a faraway place and time comes all too close to home.
