Split/Mixed archiveA one-man play. The split/mixed portrait of a boy and a country. A coming-of-age tale of a boy growing up in Rwanda in the 90s, Split/Mixed is a story of friendships and self-discovery, with tragedy lurking. The play explores a search of identity for Rwandans who grew up during the genocide. In Split/Mixed, six year old Eddy and his family arrive in Rwanda from Belgium. In spite of great financial difficulties his family sends him to the expensive Belgian School of Kigali. Between the smoke screens and mirrors at school and the harsh reality at home, Eddy and his friends form a band to take part in a live music competition on the Rwandan television network. They win and become instant celebrities. All changes when the president's plane is shot down on 6th April 1994, triggering a genocide and civil war. Ery brings to life nearly a dozen characters, merging memories into a narrative exploring kinship, cultural expectations and personal identity, and weaves the fantastic with the ordinary in his search for a singular voice.
