Rendition Monologues(Launched June 2008)
Scripted by Christine Bacon
Original Score by Michael Edwards
Rendition Monologues weaves together the first-hand testimonies of victims of extraordinary rendition; the kidnapping and illegal transfer of terrorism suspects and others considered to be implicated in the ‘War on Terror’ to be interrogated in nation states with a reputation for torture.
Rendition Monologues was a collaboration with Reprieve programmed at Massive Attack’s Meltdown Festival at the Southbank Centre in 2008 and has staged multiple performances since.
***** “Be warned. This play will leave you angry. Angry and most likely guilty too at British complicity in this unlawful, inhuman practice… if five stars mean a show is unmissable, then Rendition Monologues must get them.” WHAT’S ON STAGE
“This was a haunting and horrifying account which also paid testimony to human resilience” METRO
“If anyone doubts the shocking reality of rendition, they should see this performance.” CLIVE STAFFORD-SMITH, DIRECTOR OF REPRIEVE
