Waiting (Mokhallad Rasem)

How does an Arab theater maker looks at the world today? What does it mean to wait? Mokhallad Rasem (Toneelhuis) takes a contemporary look at Waiting for Godot by Beckett and transforms it into a 20-minute performance. On stage: Jessa Wildemeersch, Lore Uyttendaele and Bassim Mohsen. Waiting by Mokhallad Rasem was awarded on the BE Festival in Birmingham (UK).

After an intense tour in the UK, Waiting was presented again in November 2014 in Antwerp (BE), after the first showings of Body Revolution.

Waiting can be booked separately or in a double bill with Body Revolution.
