Chambers of the Heart - Unity Theatre

Chambers of the Heart

Friday 19th — Saturday 20th July

7.30pm

Part of Liverpool Arab Arts Festival 2024.

 

Three women confront love, desire and memory in stories spanning East and West in the first staged performance of Chambers of the Heart.

 

Newly divorced and adjusting to living alone in lockdown, 30-something Yasmine turns to online dating but there is something oddly familiar about who she meets.

 

Reem is a Syrian refugee in her early 40s fleeing her country but unable to let go of the memory of an unrequited love.

 

Mother is in her early 70s and reluctant to be on stage as she is interrogated by her son who is trying to unlock the past.

 

Written by Hassan Abdulrazzak, directed by Sepy Baghaei and performed by Laila Alj, this work will debut as a staged performance at Liverpool Arab Arts Festival.

 

Each performance is 70 minutes and will feature a Q&A with the creative team after a short intermission.
