Memory, History and Conflict
A series of talks, installations and music events to accompany the production of ERRATICA's Remnants at the Print Room, London (12 June–1 July 2017)
Based on a true story, Remnants is a musical-dramatic work about one woman's encounter with the aftermath of war crimes at Srebrenica, and her family's connection to the Holocaust in Bosnia fifty years before.
What Remains: Memory, History and Conflict responds to the piece's themes of memory, resonance, ritual and the aftermath of conflict, with panel discussions, film screenings, art installations and music events.
The free programme will include an exhibition by Bosnian artist Šejla Kamerić, a panel discussion involving Croatian-American author Courtney Angela Brkic and historian Rebecca Jinks, a talk with journalist and migrant rights campaigner Zrinka Bralo, and musical performance from Dado Džihan and traditional Bosnian Sevdah musician Mirza Basic.
