Untitled - Festival Theaterformen
Zoukak Theatre Company and the Association of Former Lebanese Political Detainees in Syria
21-22 June, 8:30pm at the Festival Theaterformen in Hanover, Germany
1.90 m x 90 cm; 25 m x 5 m; 1.60 m x 60 cm – those are the dimensions of the cells belonging to seven Lebanese men who will tell us about their imprisonment on stage. They each spent between ten and fifteen years of their lives as political prisoners in Syrian prisons. Despite the inhumane conditions in the prisons, they found moments of solidarity with each other. The seven men are still struggling with their return to society after their release today. Hauntingly – and sometimes humorously – they give an account of their experiences in this piece of documentary theatre, thereby also giving themselves and those still in prison a voice.
The performance was implemented by Zoukak Theatre Company and UMAM Documentation & Research in collaboration with the NGO Former Lebanese Political Detainees in Syria.
Funded by the Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen (ifa).
"Untitled" is performed by Ali AbouDehn, Raymond Bouban, Moussa Saab, Elie Tanios, Rachid Mirhom, Saad Sefaldeen Sef and Mostafa Shamseddine.
