When Farah cries
Mudar al Haggi / Theater Arbeit Duisburg
Debut performance of a Drama of Mudar Al Hague
When Farah cries tells a story of emancipation: of Farah, a young woman in Syria. During the Syrian revolution, a social attempt of liberation, she tries to liberate herself individually from family-, social and patriarchal constraints. The story takes place around one year after the beginning of the revolution, there is still hope. The drama (written in 2014) implies forebodings of the subsequent events which turned the revolution into a story of extensive war, flight and exile. It reminds us of its origin and the hopes that were invested into the uprising.
When Farah cries will be performed in three languages (Arabic, English and German) by performers from Syria, Iraq and Germany.
