Call for schools: Zoukak Open Doors
February – June 2020, Lebanon

Zoukak is opening its doors to high school and university students from January through to June, to attend performances of "Perform-Autopsy" followed by discussions with the team.

To all schools and professionals working in education who are interested in bringing a class or a group of students to watch the play, please write to us at coordination@zoukak.org by the 20th of February 2019.

“Perform-Autopsy” has toured more than 60 villages and cities across Lebanon and was performed to thousands of school and university students between 2012 and 2014.

About the performance
"Perform-Autopsy" is the English title of "Mashrah Watani".
"Mashrah" is the morgue in which the autopsy of bodies, machines, old writings... and maybe thoughts, takes place.
"Watani" is what pretends to belong to or is produced in a specific country, like Lebanon for instance.
"Perform-Autopsy" is a theater performance that puts history on the autopsy table, questioning individual and common responsibility towards past events that didn't pass unnoticed.
This performance gives the audience a chance to participate in a process of writing the unwritten history of Lebanon, relying on the popular memory of Lebanese people through the details, a memory which might be the only narrator of history.
