People disappear, are locked away and their traces are covered. Tyranny is not only prevalent in authoritarian systems: all over the world, attempts are being made to eradicate the diversity of social realities and visions, even in democratic societies.
For Out of Sight - International Playwrights Laboratory, four author*s from Kurdistan, South Africa, Palestine and Mexico have written texts on the subject of disappearance, which will be shown for the first time on screen at an event in Gorki and will later be available online. An experiment. Hybrids between theatre and film.
