Balkanschimmen - een audiovisual play

Balkanschimmen, or “Balkan Shades”, is an audio play about the Bosnian War in the first half of the '90s. The story follows a young Dutch journalist as she journeys through the scarred cities and countryside of Bosnia, and meets the people that live within this demolished world.

Music in the video below is by the band Autumn Child.


A special screen was constructed for the show. The idea was to completely immerse the viewer in the visuals, with projections in front, left, and right  An impression of the space that was built can be seen below.

The play was made for primary school children to educate them about the conflict, with the different roles being voiced by high school students. More than 350 children viewed Balkan Shades in the end.
