    Truth In Translation

     ArtsEmerson the World on Stage presents: Truth In Translation

    Can we forgive the past to survive the future? This was the question Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu asked of the South African people after a brutal half-century of Apartheid.

     ArtsEmerson the World on Stage presents: Truth In Translation

    Can we forgive the past to survive the future? This was the question Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu asked of the South African people after a brutal half-century of Apartheid. For a moment in time, the country said yes. From 1996 to 1999, victims and perpetrators told their stories face-to-face before the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The world watched in amazement. The headlines faded and the world forgot. Truth in Translation follows a group of South African actors and an American director as they try to resurrect that experiment in healing before it disappears. They do so in the belief that, if people divided by distrust could listen to each other once, it could happen again. They take this theatre production around the world to countries emerging from genocide, violence and atrocity - Rwanda, the Balkans, and Northern Ireland. As they challenge audiences to wrestle with their fears and hatreds, the actors begin to question the fragile reconciliation that’s held them together. Featuring never-before-heard original music by jazz legend Hugh Masekela.
