I Hate Theatre I Love Pornography
By Zoukak Theatre Company, Lebanon.
In collaboration with Ibsen Awards.
While the majority of citizens of countries in the northern hemisphere are becoming more and more afraid of cultural difference, electing extreme right-wing leaders and voting for exclusionist policies, for the prospect of being safe from “The Other”, and while most of the South is being torn by wars, destroying infrastructures and wiping out whole cultures, with real-estate businessmen waiting like scavengers for the right moment to sell and re-build, and as the death of children is being bartered for profit, we ask ourselves how can we as theatre makers position ourselves in the middle of this obscenity of this political opportunism.
Based on Pillars of the Community and Enemy of the People.
