Forgetting Othello

Orignal title: Забуваючи Отелло, 2020Translator: Alex Borovenskiy, English

Modern interpretation of a classic text where the words of Sir William Shakeaspeare are intertwined with African war refugees monologues. This story happens on the shore of Mediterranean sea of some European country. Every male in this play is the immigration officer, every woman is a refugee from Africa. They just bear familiar names: Jake (Iago), Rodge, Emilia, Cassio, Bianca, Daisie (Desdemona?)

The more so - the noble Moor, Othello drowns in the sea before the story starts. What is the story where there is no hero?
