Yale Rep's 'NO BOUNDARIES' Features Theatre of the Eighth Day's THE FILES, Now thru 2/22

The seventh season of NO BOUNDARIES: A SERIES OF GLOBAL PERFORMANCES, presented by Yale Repertory Theatre (James Bundy, Artistic Director; Victoria Nolan, Managing Director), will feature THE FILES by Theatre of the Eighth Day (Teatr Ósmego Dnia) for three performances only, today, February 20-22 at 8PM at the Iseman Theater (1156 Chapel Street).

NO BOUNDARIES celebrates the diversity of voices and experiences in today's world. NO BOUNDARIES explores-and explodes-the frontiers of theatrical invention through cutting-edge, thought-provoking performance. Right here in New Haven, right here at Yale.

Legendary Polish theatre company Theatre of the Eighth Day (Wormwood, 2009) returns with The Files, a riveting docudrama created from actual surveillance records the secret police kept on the group between 1975 and 1983. Through these files, a remarkable human drama unfolds-not just of life under a communist regime but of the courageous artistry that thrived in spite of that oppression.

Running time: approximately 80 minutes. The Files is performed in English. Talk Back Q&A session with members of the company will follow each performance.

The Files is part of the Poland-U.S. Campus Arts Project, a program organized by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute in Warsaw, Poland. This presentation is also generously supported by The Root Boy Slim Fund and Connecticut Humanities.
