I dag er det Norgespremiere på Kate Pendry’s “Points of Pain” som hadde verdenspremiere i Beirut under Redzone.
Le concert a débuté avec une longue rengaine lancée par la voix puissante de Mahsa qui monte dans les aigus, relayée par la voix plus grave de Marjan.
“The double bill made for a strong, albeit slightly traumatic, experience that certainly seemed to capture the Red Zone Festival’s raw and potent energy.”

Kate Pendry showed her play “Points of Pain” during Redzone in Beirut on sunday the 4th of May. The play featuring 5 actors including herself, was written with the events in Norway on the 22nd of July 2011 as a backdrop, and it was well received in a city where the population during decades has been forced to see violence as a part of the normality.
