Join Unite Oregon, the YWCA, and the We Are All Oregon coalition for a special showing of the play No Candy on Sunday, February 3 at the Portland Playhouse. At the center of No Candy is a multi-generational community of Bosnian Muslim women who survived the Srebrenica genocide and, years later, open a gift shop for tourists who visit the Srebrenica memorial. While No Candy is very much about how trauma inhabits the body and shapes a community, it is also about the persistence of humor, art, and absurdity in an unimaginable time.
The director, Tea Alagic, and one of the play's actors, Mia Zara, were refugees who eventually came to live in the United States due to these events. Listen to Mia talking about the play and growing up as a survivor of the Srebrenica genocide on OPB's Think Out Loud.
We are hosting a short panel discussion after the play. This play will be the first event in our media series for We Are All Oregon, with two films to follow.
