“The 20th of November” is the story of a teenager transformed by the society into an executioner.
On 20th November 2016, in Emsdetten, an 18 years old teenager returns to his former school, being on the rampage, and starts shooting as many people as he can, before committing suicide.
Based on this true story, Lars Noren creates a documented fictional play illustrating the ruined life of an abused young man. The reason for the incommensurable revenge is having been addressed violent words during his childhood. Noren’s script is about nowadays capitalist Western Europe confronting with social identity problems, such as terrorism and the 2015 immigration wave.
In “The 20th of November”, Lars Noren analyzes the psychology and mechanism of violence which determines the individual to pass from the position of an assaulted person to aggressor and also the repercussions of a flawed education that can create monsters.
An impactful and poetic script about the problems of the modern society.
A performance presenting a broken adolescence.
Performance presented in Romanian, with translation into English.
