The Return of Danton is a new play by Syrian playwright Mudar Alhaggi and directed by Omar Elerian. Written and performed in Arabic, the play is a contemporary exploration of how the dynamics of political revolutions – from the French Revolution to the Arab Spring – can be reflected within the politics of the rehearsal room.
Collective Ma’louba is an intercultural theatre lab currently in residence at the Theater an der Ruhr in Mülheim. In its theatre productions, Collective Ma’louba questions the political and social conditions of the Arab world against the background of recent rebellions and penetrates the taboos of Arab and European society. Additional artistic projects of thematic relevance accompany the theatre productions. They work in NRW, Germany and across the world, thus creating transnational meeting places.
