شرق أوسط جديد



By Muatz Abu-Saleh
Directed by Bashar Murkus
Khashabi Theatre and Oyoun Theatre
Premiere 02 July 2013 Acre.

A masked soldier buries a woman while she is still alive. Who is he? Who is she? We might know or we might not. This burial of the woman may be equally confusing for both the audience and the two characters on stage.
However, in spite of the cruelty of this act, there is a space for a tragicomic dialogue between the two characters. In a certaincountry a soldier is fulfilling his duty and a woman is fulfilling her role as a victim
that ought to be buried for a reason she doesn’t know. Yet, we know that they come from two conflicting groups.
Will the soldier be unmasked?
