The Incident is an award-winning play by Swedish Playwright Joakim Daun that tackles belonging, migration, racism and power through an intimate love story spanning Sweden and Zimbabwe. The Incident explores the realities of living in a different culture, far from family, support, and tradition. It takes a closer at who we allow to belong in our societies and what it means to be an ambitious, non-white woman in a mostly white male dominated society. The play takes a critical look at when belonging is conditional upon confronting an oppressive homogeneous environment. It asks how ?progressive’ people really are when they’re confronted with difficult choices. How do peoples’ own history, culture and language influence their perceptions and treatment of people that are different from them?
