Abstract:

Cofounder of London's Zaoum Theatre and its Arabic-world counterpart, SABAB Theatre, Kuwaiti-born director Sulayman Al Bassam uses his stage productions to explore contemporary issues of identity, oppression, and conflict. Beginning in 2007, he adapted Shakespeare's Richard III into Arabic with several intriguing layers of interpretation and modernization. This film follows the production as it moves from rehearsals in Kuwait to a 2008-2009 international tour that includes a royal audience in the United Arab Emirates and a U.S. premiere at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Viewers are allowed inside Al Bassam's fascinating creative process as cast and crew gather in various cities across the Middle East, breathing life into their fictional characters in a way that reflects the political upheavals surrounding them.
