Liwaa Yazji, Waël Ali & Jumana Al-Yasiri

Syrian theatre and contemporary writing


This afternoon focuses on Syrian theatre and on the work of a young generation of contemporary playwrights. We present two publications of freshly translated work to dutch by Syrian writers. Je ne m’en souviens plus by Waël Ali questions the intersection between individual memory and collective memory, at a pivotal moment in Syrian history. Liwaa Yazji’s Goats explores our choice as a society to believe lies and propaganda, and the expansive effect when a person questions this ‘truth’.

Liwaa Yazji and Waël Ali will be in conversation with performing arts manager and artistic consultant Jumana Al-Yasiri. Introduction by Cees Vossen (Moussem Nomadic Arts Centre).
