“As I walked on the city’s soil, encountered its people and walked through its genocide memorial.  I as an outsider, a female, a Southern African, a Belgian felt it was necessary to not stay silent..."

GIANT is a unique and dynamic work, part dance, part installation. It combines movement, song, text, film and photography to relay an urban legend based on the realism of Rwanda’s turbulent history.  Created by Alesandra Seutin, and inspired by her journey through the country, the work delivers a stark, scathing but emotional depiction of a nation in its time of crisis and reminds us that this is a story in which each of us consciously or subconsciously, plays a role and for which there are consequences.

Recommended ages 13+

ACCESS: The first half of the performance is standing, and the second half is seated.
Text will be captioned as surtitles
