Arab Arts Focus: Talks & Pitch Sessions

Summerhall Festival - Demonstration Room

Workshop

Arab Arts Focus Talks Programme supported by Tamasi Collective for the Performing Arts and curated by Jumana Al-Yasiri, Sundance Institute Theatre Programme. Hosted by Shubbak – London’s largest festival of Contemporary Arab Culture – Forever Arab? discusses how notions of identity, nationality and politics influence the creations and reception of Arab theatre makers. As artists increasingly work internationally, does ‘being an Arab’ ease or complicate to get your works seen? Join a lively discussion with artists from Shubbak and the Arab Art Focus and hear their take on identity, typecasting and representation. Speakers: Hassan Abdulrazzak (Iraq/UK), Alia Alzougbi (Lebanon/UK), Amer Hlehel (Palestine) Moderator: Eckhard Thiemann (Germany/UK) Arab Arts Focus Talks Programme supported by Tamasi Collective for the Performing Arts and curated by Jumana Al-Yasiri, Sundance Institute Theatre Programme.
