Theater play

I see my ghost coming from afar

Taking its name from the poem by Palestinian writer Mahmoud Darwish, "I see my ghost coming from afar" is a journey into a parallel world. A world populated by a group of ghosts, invisible to the human eye. In the real world, we are losing ourselves. But the world of ghosts is a comforting space; it’s a world of dance, movement, and play. There are dreams of the sea and a sea of dreams. We attempt a revolution against the dead, the living and ourselves.

This physical theatre production was devised and written in Lebanon by young Lebanese & Palestinian actors, who were brought together by Seenaryo, an arts and education organisation working in Lebanon and Jordan. Project in partnership with Goethe-Institut Libanon, Social Welfare Institution, and Yaabad Scout Troupe; with thanks to Hammana Artist House and the Sunflower Theater.
