Cry for Peace: Voices from the Congo (world premiere)
Archbold Theater, Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St.,
Written by Ping Chong and Kyle Bass with Sara Zatz. Cyprien Mihigo, dramaturg/cultural consultant, in collaboration with the performers and the Congolese community of Syracuse
Based on in-depth interviews, Cry From Peace: Voices from the Congo brings to the stage five real people, including survivors and refugees from the recent Congolese civil war, members of once opposing tribes—the abductor and the violated--struggling to leave the past behind and form a peaceful community in Central New York. A composition of interwoven personal narratives, powerful images and beautiful songs, Cry for Peace is a rich theatrical experience—a searing, moving and hopeful hymn to the power of the human spirit. From the creators of the acclaimed Tales from the Salt City.
