Project Description

By Asiimwe Deborah Kawe and Sean Christopher Lewis

Red Hills, originally produced in New York City by En Garde Arts, invites audiences to travel from an NGO presentation by David Zosia, American author and self-proclaimed expert on Rwandan history, to the fields of Rwanda to meet God’s Blessing, a Rwandan Tour guide. Travel back to 1994 and experience these two men from vastly different cultures as they relive the events of their first meeting during the genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda. A collaboration between similarly diverse playwrights, Ugandan Asiimwe Deborah Kawe and American Sean Christopher Lewis, Red Hills invites you to bear witness as these two men face long-buried memories, confront ghosts of their pasts, and question who owns history.
