World Cultures Festival: Explore the Grey Areas of Human Morality with this Kinder-K Play Reading

Why We Recommend it

Staged in Oslo, Copenhagen, London and New York, Kinder K’s Asian debut is presented in the form of play-reading, shedding light on the text itself to bring home the moral ambiguity of this social development.


Kinder-K by Norwegian playwright Kristofer Grønskag brings to us the story of a German couple in 1939, who spurns their  irreparably impaired baby and out of shame asks the Nazi government to euthanise the infant under the regime’s Action T4 “mercy killings”. This is contrasted with a contemporary setting when prenatal screening means the parents’ dilemma is whether such a youngster should even be born. Different eras, similar plight. Kinder K explores the choices we make as humans. With the rise of gene technology, who and what can really determine when another’s life is worth living?
