In the game of televised warfare, it is unclear who’s allowed to say ‘we’ anymore. One toy land is turned into another. Nobel prize winner Elfriede Jelinek’s text dismantles the global media war machine as accounts of Iraq’s invasion collapse into a child refugee’s memories of the Bosnian war. The violent act of representation is played back before our eyes on video and we find ourselves immersed in this battle of toy soldiers. It all comes back around, especially the wars.

Age Guidance: 12+
