Two actresses and an actor come back to their journey in theater, from the moment they have decided to work in theater in the early 80s during the civil war. Their testimonies reconstitute the memory of Beirut, at the time where the city was divided between east and west. They retrace through their personal and professional souvenirs the map of the theaters and venues that no longer exist. The project questions the theatrical activity during a decade of war – since 1980 until 1991; the year of the signature of the amnesty law that ended 15 years of fighting in Lebanon – and the relation of these actors to their profession today.



“Temporary Title”
Category: Performing Arts
Year: 2016
Status: Open

A theater project that explores the history of immigration in The Levant (Al-Mashreq) since 1915, through the history of a family, none of whose members were born and died in the same country over the course of 100 years. The performance is based on a cassette tape sent by a man in Sweden to his brother in Lebanon in 1976 at the beginning of the Lebanese Civil War. The project moves from the personal to the public and aims to rewrite a history that has been repeated for 100 years, through two perspectives: One that is reconciled with the idea of immigration, and another which experiences it in a reductive manner, as if the story takes place concurrently here and there.
