Memorial is a verbatim play that tells the story of the Christchurch Muslim community during and following the two mosque shootings that occurred on March 15 in Christchurch, New Zealand, using embodied rituals and practices. Memorial chronicles the impact of the shootings and systems of violence through the words and experiences of seven citizens of Christchurch, focusing on the friends and families of those who were lost in the attacks. It deeply engages with themes of migration, diaspora, and the experience of otherness and xenophobia, both within and outside communities.
