These are voices of the Arab Spring.

JAN 24 — 28, 2018


In 2011, democratic uprisings erupted all over the Arab world. Citizens challenged their leadership and questioned regimes. From internationally acclaimed Anglo-Kuwaiti writer and director Sulayman Al-Bassam, In the Eruptive Mode presents six monologues of ordinary citizens — all women — caught in the violence and chaos of the Arab Spring. These visceral, poetic monologues with song capture unheard voices, each at their own precarious tipping point.

Internationally acclaimed Anglo-Kuwaiti writer and director Sulayman Al-Bassam brought his inventive satire The Speaker’s Progress to ArtsEmerson in 2011. Now he returns with a powerful new production. Through voice, music and sound, In the Eruptive Mode embraces contemporary language and new dramatic forms to respond to the challenges that still reign across much of the Arab world. Raw, brutally satirical and entirely original: these are voices of the Arab Spring.

«A heavy dose of political courage and mental clarity.»
