THEMIS & LOMBROSO
a play by Bilgesu Erenus
With the Gezi protest as a background, Turkish playwright and activist Bilgesu Erenus tickles the audience with a dialogue between Themis, Goddess of Justice, and the criminologist Lombroso, inventor of innate criminal theory.
“Why is there blood on Themis’ Sword? Can her Scale, the symbol of the fair distribution of justice, be sustained in the current global capitalist conditions? Does Truth or desperation spawn the belief that humanity’s salvation can only take place when our notions of Justice include Social Justice?
Themis: Silvia Terribili
Lombroso: Roberto Bacchilega
Costumes: Özlem Micoogullari
