BY DICK WALSH
This is a multi-disciplinary research project that is looking at creating theatre from newspaper articles published on the 13th March 2012. The project is about exploring the recreation of reality, epistemology and how we understand historical time.
The justification for the showing is to take the right amount of time to digest one day’s worth of news, instead of the meager 24 hours that we typically take. On the 13th of March 2012 a bus in Switzerland crashed killing 22 Belgian children on their way home from a school tour. These are the news stories from that day.
