Two Heads and a Hand: Lebanon tour

After being performed in front of 500 high school and university students, and following 3 public performances in Zoukak Studio, Beirut, “Two Heads and a Hand” by Zoukak Theatre Company will be performed 10 times in different locations across Lebanon.

Two Heads and a Hand
Based on texts by Shakespeare

Two Heads and a Hand is based on a theatrical game, where three actors test their abilities to play brutal characters and acts on stage inspired from Shakespeare’s plays. The performance sheds the light on the whirlpool of violence that we witness in our daily lives, questioning its normalization and the extent of its effect on the audience.
