New Writing From Kuwait
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.
