In September 2004 a group of terrorists stormed a school in Beslan taking hundreds of children hostage. The ensuing siege lasted three days and left many dead. Us/Them is not a straightforward account of this terrible tragedy, but an exploration of the entirely individual way children cope with traumatic situations.
After a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016 and winning The Scotsman Fringe First Award, Us/Them comes to the NT.
With humour and a matter-of-fact approach, it contrasts the views of children with those of adults. Brussels-based BRONKS is one of Belgium’s leading theatres for young audiences.
