The 9th Day before the Last

A once-young actor is released after spending 30 years in detainment. He finds himself face to face with a world he cannot quite touch, where past, present and future have merged. He decides to tell his story in an effort to find answers, to make sense. This postmodern theatrical performance highlights the mechanisms of repression and tyranny suffered by Arabs, particularly by Arab youth and artists who get arrested simply for expressing variant views and beliefs.
