Brolly Productions and Half Moon present
her house is gone
her home is destroyed
her world has changed
…I am her
A girl comes home to find her house has disappeared. The neighbours have fled and the streets are deserted. her is a compelling story of a fifteen year old London girl who inexplicably finds that conflict has made her an alien in her own country.
Drawing on the experiences of ordinary people confronted with displacement as a result of war, this at times shocking play features one actor playing different versions of the ‘girl’. She navigates the harsh realities faced by young women in conflict zones and the difficult choices they have to make to survive.
Using innovative green screen technology to integrate animation, film and live action, her combines the emotional depth of theatre with the visual intensity of the graphic novel to create a dark and twisted world of politics, war and survival.
Performances are followed by a Q and A giving audiences a chance to discuss the creative processes used to make the show and the issues raised by the production.
READ OUR INTERVIEW WITH THE HER CREATIVE TEAM
On Saturday 4 February, as part of Brolly Productions’ residency at Half Moon, we are holding a series of events, symposiums and free workshops exploring the issues of conflict and violence against women and girls dramatised in the production. As well as an opportunity to gain an insight into the digital creative processes used to make the show, there will be a chance to meet and discuss the issues raised by the play with advocacy organisations including War Child, Amnesty International UK and Tony Blair Faith Foundation.
