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 getting your works seen? Join a lively discussion with artists from Shubbak and the Arab Arts Focus and hear their take on identity, typecasting and representation.
This event is supported by The Jerwood Foundation.
Speakers: Hassan Abdulrazzak (Iraq/UK), Alia Alzougbi (Lebanon/UK), Amer Hlehel (Palestine)
