This Is Not a Memorized Script, This Is a Well-Rehearsed Story

Dima Matta  |  Performing Arts  |  2019  |  Lebanon
This play is an autobiographical solo piece in which Matta narrates stories about her queer identity in relation to the city (Beirut), her relationships, language, violence, and anxiety. It is an exploration of how they intersect and what happens when they do. Matta puts herself under a microscope and continuously questions the findings, while insisting on the unreliability of memory.
