World premiere of a newly commissioned work, inspired by the DC Sniper events.
Forest Treás (pronounced ‘Triage’) examines the unforeseen effects of the Information Age on a community in violent crisis.
October 2002. The ongoing Beltway Sniper crisis looms over the residents of Forest Treàs, a neighborhood on the outskirts of Washington, DC. As the Neighborhood Association struggles to maintain a sense of calm and security, a documentary filmmaker proposes a radical solution: put cameras everywhere and live-stream their neighborhood. What could go wrong?
This work is funded in part through a DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities grant and will include a series of free community engagement events – Pointed Conversations – surrounding the themes of the show.
June 9: Post-Show discussion with the creative team behind Forest Treàs
June 13: Panel Discussion led by the Wendt Center discussing grief and trauma
