December 1 – 4, 2016
Experimental Media Performance Lab (xMPL)

Our Class tells the story of a group of Polish and Jewish classmates beginning in 1925, first examining the atrocities they suffer as war breaks out in their town and anti-Semitism erupts in a series of rapes, murders, and instances of torture. As we follow the few survivors throughout the remainder of their lives, they attempt to reckon with the past, trying in retrospect to make sense of seemingly senseless events. At its core this is a universal tale of collective blame, inexplicable history, and the dangers of xenophobic group think leading to the scapegoating of entire populations.

A limited number of free tickets [20] available for UCI students through Illuminations; rsvp through provided links.

Performances:
Evenings: Dec. 1, 2, 3, 4 @ 8 p.m.
Matinees: Dec. 3, 4* @ 2 p.m.

*Ticketholders: Please join us for a post-performance TalkBack with the creative team and cast.
