How words can lead to genocide 

One of the most brutal genocides in history was sparked on 6 April 1994 when the aircraft of Rwandan President Habyarumana was shot down by rockets. In a matter of weeks, the Central African state murdered an estimated one million of its Tutsi minority citizens and thousands of moderate Hutus. Among the instruments used were machetes, sticks, guns and a radio broadcaster: Radio-Télévision Libre des Mille Collines (RTLM). With unspeakable cynicism, this popular station had for months prepared the genocide in minute detail.

With a reconstruction of their recording studio, Milo Rau shows us the blunt hatred of these ‘criminals of words’. Everything is truthfully portrayed in the arena that has been recreated by Rau: the words were really spoken, the characters really exist and all speak candidly of their crimes. In ‘Hate Radio’ you will find yourself at the centre of the bloody hysteria of these devilish manipulators. In this way the consequences of racism become dreadfully apparent and the message rings clear: remain vigilant.

With ‘Hate Radio’, Milo Rau has established his reputation as a director. In 2012 he was invited to the Berliner Theatertreffen with this piece.
