What story lies behind the image? The truth, or the next front page?

In the digital era of the 24 hour news cycle, how do photojournalists square their commitment to the truth with the medias voracious need for a graphic image? When the threat of death is a daily reality, why do they do it?

Landing in Sarajevo and joining a pack of seasoned war journalists, rookie photographer Dannie Hills sets out to capture the perfect image. Each photograph she shoots becomes a kaleidoscope of dreams, memories and emotions - exciting, painful, and forever haunting...

Widely heralded as a remarkable piece of physical theatre, this award-winning play integrates fluid movement, live sound design and animated projections with striking originality. With its frenetic and restless energy set against a backdrop of 20 years of conflict, Bare Witness is a visceral experience that will change the way you look at the news.

"...an amazing dramatic collage describing the exhilaration, the horror, the outrage, the anguish and the dread hopelessness of combat-zone photography... a beautiful theatrical immersion, a dramatic meeting of presence, movement and arrangement... the kinds of risks that we dont see enough of." - Andrew Fuhrmann, Crikey.com
