Now Is The Time To Say Nothing explores the bloody conflict in Syria through the eyes of young Londoners in a collaboration with Syrian filmmaker Reem Karssli. Reem’s film Every Day Every Day documents the harsh realities of everyday life in Damascus, while thousands of miles away, we’re confronted with the way we connect to devastation on the other side of the television screen.

Featuring moving video and a stunning soundscape, this powerful and immersive Young Vic Taking Part production plays at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for a strictly limited run.
