Four actors meet to record a radio feature and ask themselves: How can extreme violence be narrated? How do you evoke suffering – without repeating it? The Ukrainian-German devised play News from the Past looks back at the 1930s and 1940s and embarks on a search for our shared history with our distant neighbour of Ukraine. What role does the struggle to narrate the past play today? Perhaps this journey into the past will help us to better understand the present?
