East West Street: A Song of Good and Evil
21 October 2019 7:30 pm£15 – £25
Southbank Centre, Belvedere Road, London SE1 8XX
Part of London Literature Festival
A partly staged reading inspired by international human rights lawyer Philippe Sands’ award-winning bestseller about the Nuremberg trials.
East West Street explores the origins of ‘genocide’ and ‘crimes against humanity’ and the path to justice. The performance focuses on the lives and ideas of three individuals from the trials: academic Hersch Lauterpacht, prosecutor Raphael Lemkin and Hitler’s lawyer Hans Frank, and the music that connected men on opposite sides of the courtroom.
Following a world tour, East West Street: A Song of Good & Evil returns in a new version to Southbank Centre five years after its premiere, narrated by award-winning German actress Katja Riemann and Philippe Sands, and directed by Nina Brazier.
