Seenaryo will be presenting a scene from its recent production by youth living in Lebanon, I see my ghost coming from afar. The play was created in cooperation with the Goethe Institut Libanon, Dar Al Aytam Al Islamiya and Yaabad Scout Troupe (also thanks to the Artist House and Sunflower Theatre).
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.
Given Covid-19 restrictions and the difficulty of performing publicly to wide audiences, Seenaryo produced a film of the show.
The group will be presenting a scene from this filmed version of the play I see my ghost coming from afar, after which the actors and creators of the show will be participating in a discussion around gender and masculinity.
