Paint The Town Festival presents: NOW IS THE TIME TO SAY NOTHING BY REEM KARSSLI AND CAROLINE WILLIAMS
Now Is The Time To Say Nothing is an interactive sound and video installation exploring the role of screens in observing global conflicts.

The show is a provocation against armchair passivity.

Using stunning video and immersive sound, it follows the real story of Syrian artist Reem Karssli as she captures her daily experience of the Syrian conflict on camera.

We see what emerges when she is contacted by a group of teenagers from the UK who want to see beyond the footage theyve watched on their TVs.

Together they co-author an experience which attempts to connect a UK audience to the human story behind the news. Created over four years, following Reem into an exile which forces her to leave her camera behind, Now Is The Time To Say Nothing is an intimate exploration of what it means to stay connected to each other and of what happens when war and the need for survival gets in the way.

Exquisitely simple and moving. This is a cunningly constructed and heartfelt piece that acknowledges the complexities of what is happening in Syria, reminds how sitting in the dark watching a screen only distances us, and actively tries to bring us together to reach out to the real people, just like us, whose lives are blighted by war.
Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

Now Is The Time To Say Nothing by is one of the most powerful and beautiful pieces Ive seen in a long time.
Mike Tweddle Tobacco Factory

If the essence of theatre is an invitation to imagine that we are someone else and for a moment to see the world through their eyes, then this is truly theatre at its most essential.
Tom Morris Bristol Old Vic
