Join a panel of experts in a discussion about Silo Theatre’s The Events and the questions it raises: How can a person enact such devastating violence, and what is our own capacity for this kind of transgression? What do we do when this happens: How do we respond? How do we forgive? How do we move on? And what are the hard questions we aren't asking?
