Safadi Fine Arts Bldg, LAU Beirut
In this play, the audience immerses itself in a journey undertaken by four characters: a war photographer, a female singer, a female bookshop owner and a university professor who is also a party member. The aim is to try to recover their memories. The Lebanese civil war, naturally or else deliberately forgotten, has today, and more than ever before, assumed a sectarian and majority/minority aspect. Alfred Faraj frames it thus: "Lebanon today is just a small example, a laboratory or a practical experience of what may well happen in the region between the Atlantic Ocean and the Arabian Gulf." A loss of memory is therefore another aspect of the loss of humanity.
Places are limited. It is a site seeing performance where the audience will tour on the floors of the building and watch the scenes in specific locations.
Directed by Aliya Khalidi. Texts by Alfred Faraj, Mira Al-Sidawi, Anas Ghaibeh. Dramaturg: Hiba Sleiman
