From interviews, emails, texts, administrative documents and other “real sources,” Mohamed El Khatib alone on stage (re)constructs a delicate tale of mourning about the death of his mother in a touching work that achieves a certain timelessness. The play was an acclaimed success at the 2015 Avignon Fringe Festival.
