"The Invention of the Enemy: 1938"

When: Wednesday, January 30, 2013 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Where: Nyumburu Center
Event Type(s): Theatre Performance

In this The Gruppo Teatro Essere production we see the intentional vilification of, and accompanying consequences for, Italy's Jews as the Fascist regime converts them from fellow citizens, friends and neighbors into enemies of the state. While describing this process and its broad human cost can and does fill volumes, the play delivers its message reproducing events taken from the life of a single person -- a real person (prominent Jewish actor Arnoldo FoĆ ) -- survivor of the period and protagonist in this "theater of memory." Reception following.
