The Final Solution - Aman Banwait

What happens when the oppressed becomes an oppressor? Drawing parallels between the suffering of the Holocaust and of the current Israeli-Palestinian conflict, The Final Solution explores the people’s tie to their lands and to what extent they are tied to it. The land has witnessed the coming and going of many civilizations which begs the question: who has a right to it now? By reflecting on what has been, our journey takes us on the path to what can be. Is there a Final Solution, and whose solution is it?

Each year, Paprika develops and produces new plays and/or creative projects of various lengths with the support of professional artist mentors. Projects can be presented in a variety of forms. Performance based works that are experimental which incorporate non-linear forms of writing, visual art, dance or other art forms. They can also be conventional plays, solo-performances or large-scale productions. Paprika provides each company an artistic mentor who is a professional with expertise in specific areas of focus. The team at Paprika works with the company to find the best mentor pairing and to ensure their project is as strong as possible.
