New Writing From Kuwait

4/07/13

BUY NOW: £10/£8 Concessions

Join us at The Mosaic Rooms for an evening showcasing some of the best new writing from Kuwait, introduced by SABAB Theatre’s Georgina Van Welie and Sulayman Al-Bassam.

The last few years have seen a burgeoning of new writing talent in a country which prides itself on a level of freedom of speech exceptional in the Gulf region.

A varied programme in both English and Arabic, introducing a diverse range of new voices from young film-makers such as Dana Al Mojil whose award winning “Wonderland A True Story” speaks to a generation of disenfranchised youth, and films by Mousaed Khaled and Faisal Duwaisan; the dynamic young poet and novelist Nada Faris with a performance of her Slam Poetry; a rehearsed reading of part one of a trilogy of modern day Arabian Nights by Iranian-Canadian writer Nima Algooneh; and a collaboration between Kuwaiti playwright Hooda Shawa and Indian director Vachan Sharma that tells the story of a young Syrian boy in a refugee camp.

Produced by SABAB Theatre.
