A monodrama exploring the inner struggles of an Arab girl living in Europe, torn between Eastern and Western cultural values. The performance includes the participation of Arabs living in Arab countries as well as Arabs living in European countries. It explores the inner divisions in the girl’s mind, between ‘personality’ and ‘self’, body and mind, desires and societal pressures, and examines her ongoing struggle for coherence.
