Artist Talk following 'The Most Unsatisfied Town'
The Most Unsatisfied Town is based on the true story of Oury Jalloh, who was killed in Dessau police custody on January 7, 2005, and the activists who spurred an international movement to bring his killers to justice. The case can be discussed with the team after the show.
Playwright Amy Evans invites Mouctar Bah from Initiative in Remembrance of Oury Jalloh to discuss the sensitive topic after the show. The talk will be simultaneous interpreted to German by Catherine Johnson.

About the piece:
The Most Unsatisfied Town
Since he arrived in Germany, Laurence has tried to do everything by the rules. He applied for asylum, waited patiently for his papers and found the kind of job no national would ever care to do. He is friendly to his neighbors, even the ones who tease his children in school, and cooperates with the police when they ask for his help.He’s found the formula for survival, or so he thinks, until one day his friend Rahim mysteriously disappears. When the body turns up charred beyond recognition, Laurence is thrust to the fore of a civil rights movement and is forced to take a closer look at the town he was so ready to call home.
