As part of Pride Week, “biriken” Collective is performing Yann Verburgh’s Ogres as a reader’s theater at the French Cultural Center. The play traces the story of Benjamin who is tortured in a forest in Normandy and left to die while simultaneously juxtaposing the perspectives of victims, attackers, families and witnesses of intolerable violence in 14 different countries. The only thing that cannot be buried and destroyed under the bodies of the wounded in the midst of violence, torture, incoherence are the love, hope and courage of these characters across the world. The performance will be followed by a conversation with the play’s author Yann Verburgh.
