The Alienation of Hassan al Wazzan

Chamates Theatre  |  Performing Arts  |  2010  |  Morocco
This play is a theatrical re-telling of the life of the famous 15th century north African ambassador, traveler and writer Hassan al Wazzan, otherwise known as the Lion of Africa, who travelled throughout Africa before settling in Rome and converting to Christianity. In addition to being a fascinating figure in his own rite, Hassan al Wazzan also faced the same issues as Arab society today, concerning religion, interfaith dialogue and the meaning of civilization.
