The Rep: We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia

We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as Southwest Africa, from the German Sudwestafrika, Between the Years 1885-1915 by Jackie Sibblies Drury

A group of actors – three black and three white – gather to recreate the little-known story of the original genocide of the 20th century, the extinction of the Herero tribe at the hands of their German colonizers. Along the way, the actors test the limits of empathy as their own assumptions and prejudices affect their theatrical process until eventually the full force of a horrific past crashes into the good intentions of the present. The Washington Post called it “A genuine thunderbolt … devastatingly funny … dangerous and primal and weird.”
