Battle of Mosul
Das Stück „Die Schlacht von Mossul“ von Alexey Zhitkovsky spielt in der kleinen irakischen Stadt Mossul, in der tausende Zivilisten während des Krieges starben. Das Stück beschäftigt sich mit Feindbildern, mit der Militarisierung der Gesellschaft und dem Versuch der Menschen sich vom Krieg, der nicht ihrer ist, zu distanzieren.
