The hide-out of Osama Bin Laden, alias “Geronimo”, in Pakistan. An exact copy of that house was created at a military base in North Carolina. And a third replica house was constructed in Jordan, where a film is shot.
Why is this house so notorious? Simply because it was a monster’s lair. A monster whose actions prompted the start of one of the most complex arrest operations in history, a veritable man hunt. These events serve as inspiration for “A House in Asia”, an engrossing play produced by Agrupacion Senor Serrano in collaboration with Thionville’s national theatre Nest.
Portrayed as a kind of wild west battle, the performance uses scale models, video projections and physical theatre to portray the events that followed in the decade after the 19/11 attacks.
Pitched at young people aged 10 and upwards, the performance lasts 65 minutes.
