Profile

A Kuwaiti British playwright and theatre director. Born in 1972, he is founder of Zaoum Theatre Company (London 1996-2001) and its Arabic arm, Sulayman Al-Bassam Theatre Kuwait (2002). Al-Bassam Theatre has been celebrated across four continents by the world's most prestigious cultural powerhouses. Its projects are characterized by a radical approach to text (new writing and re-workings of Shakespeare), bold production styles and an uncompromising engagement with issues concerning the contemporary Arab world. Over the last four years, the company has created a string of internationally acclaimed productions such as The Al-Hamlet Summit, Kalila wa Dimna, The Mirror For Princes, Richard 3, an Arab Tragedy. The work of Al-Bassam Theatre challenges the negative preconceptions surrounding Arab and Muslim culture today; it champions the Arab voice internationally and creates an intercultural space for Arab culture on the world stage.
