“Written and performed by the utterly magnetic Ery Nzaramba, Split/Mixed is by turns hilarious, harrowing and acutely moving.”
The Stage (****)
 
“An extraordinary one-man play (...) Split/Mixed is deeply moving, even harrowing at times. But it is also extremely funny (...) Nzaramba brings to life all the different members of his family, his friends at school, and the people he encounters. And somehow the magic works”

Dancing in a nightclub, Eddy finds himself being asked “where are you from?” This eternal question resounds with many others “Were you there then…?” “Which ‘side’ did you belong to?” and, always quietly present, “Are you a victim or a killer?”
Eddy was born in Europe and returned to Rwanda with his family as a young child. Should he answer the country of his heritage? – Or dodge the issue by answering the place of his birth?
Split/Mixed recalls a childhood much like many others – attending school, listening to music, playing football… until Eddy’s world is turned upside down and everything is ripped apart…
