Hold the dates: Death and the Maiden , Altera Vitae at MainLine Theatre- May 13-24

From the 2009 World Theatre Day Message (March 27) by Augusto Boal

Theatre is the Hidden Truth. When we look beyond appearances, we see oppressors and oppressed people, in all societies, ethnic groups, genders, social classes and casts; we see an unfair and cruel world. We have to create another world because we know it is possible. But it is up to us to build this other world with our hands and by acting on the stage and in our own life. We are all actors: being a citizen is not living in society, it is changing it.

Hold the Dates!

Wednesday, May 13 Sunday, May 24, 2009

Years after the fall of a dictatorship, a woman gets the chance to confront her torturer.

Is this a time for forgiveness or revenge?

Altera Vitae helping those who need to be heard

Each Altera Vitae production is partnered with a community organization whose mandate is similar to the theme of the play. For this production, Altera Vitae is proud to support RIVO, a network of therapists and community workers concerned with the well being of survivors of torture and other forms of organised political violence.
