“This powerful real-life account of life in Jenin in the West Bank is a raw and sharply comic production, asking if the stage can be as powerful as an AK47.” The Guardian
Duration: 80 mins
Performed by: Ahmed Tobasi
Written by: Hassan Abdulrazzak
Directed by: Zoe Lafferty
Translator: Eyas Younis
Produced by: Oliver King for Developing Artists
Based on actor Ahmed Tobasi’s personal coming of age story, And Here I Am is an epic voyage of identity and self-discovery. Combining fact and fantasy, tragedy and comedy, spanning both the first Palestinian intifada and the second, we follow Tobasi through his transformation from armed resistance fighter to artist, and his journey as a refugee from the West Bank to Norway and back again. And Here I Am is a one man show that will leave you speechless, inspired, and in awe of this man’s journey.
Ahmed Tobasi and Zoe Lafferty will hold a storytelling workshop on 23 March. Please check the special events section for more information.
