OVNI takes a look at today’s situation of conflict, over and above immediate economic and political issues—the persistence of forgetting. It is based on two principal works, The Mahabharata by Peter Brook and La Commune by Peter Watkins, contextualized by a series of videos that reflect the present day.
This programme sets out to review some of the most worrying realities of our times, specifically the experience of conflict with power and the imminence of escalating confrontation. It is a conflict that goes beyond the field of politics to affect the very notion of civilization and seems to emanate from within human nature.
