Clarinet Theatre - Fadi Alghoul

Fadi Alghoul and Clarinet Theatre

Synopsis: When the dust settles after the battle and the iron begins to rust. How do we move forward? When the city counts its streets and alleys…Does it count all those who went and never came back…all those who sank into the sea or drowned in their sadness? If building deserves all these efforts does the destruction do so too? If life deserves these attempts, what does death deserve? When this stupid game stops, what then? The war…
This theatrical work is to revive the memory of a Palestinian child who has lived in Beirut during the war in 1982 with all its dimensions. The events are taking place in the region between awakening and sleep between fantasy (dream) and reality.
