Untitled in Hannover
Zoukak Theatre Company, the Association of Former Lebanese Political Detainees in Syria and UMAM

21-22 June, 8:30pm at the Festival Theaterformen in Hanover, Germany

“Untitled” will be performed twice within the Theaterformen Festival in Hanover, Germany at the end of June.

Synopsis

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. 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.

This performance was produced by Zoukak Theatre Company and UMAM Documentation & Research in collaboration with the NGO Former Lebanese Political Detainees in Syria, and funded by the Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen (ifa).

"Untitled" is performed by Ali AbouDehn, Raymond Bouban, Moussa Saab, Elie Tanios, Rachid Mirhom, Saadeddine Seifedeen and Mostafa Shamseddine.
