Théâtre National

The Congo Tribunal

Milo Rau


In partnership with Le Soir, the National Theater proposes, on the occasion of the creation "History of the Theatre", a documentary by the same Swiss artist, Milo Rau.

The screening will be followed by a debate with Amnesty International.

For more than 20 years an inexplicable Civil War is turning a territory as big as western Europe into hell on earth. Triggered by the Rwandan genocide in 1994, the Congo War, also called the "Third World War", has claimed six million lives. Many observers not only see in it a fight about political predominance in Central Africa, but also one of the most decisive economic battles for the share in the era of globalization.

Milo Rau's "The Congo Tribunal" examines the causes and backgrounds to this, so far biggest and bloodiest economic war in human history in a unique and stunningly transmedia art project.
