Belfast International Arts Festival and Riham Isaac present Another Lover’s Discourse ليه خلّتني أحبك
Commissioned exclusively for Belfast International Arts Festival, Another Lover’s Discourse ليه خلتني احبك is a solo theatre show created and performed by Riham Isaac that encourages a more open conversation about how we understand romantic relationships.
It feels like we are waiting for something. Is it the myth of love? Or something to delight our minds?
What do we want? Will we ever truly know how to love?
We rarely openly discuss romantic desires, love, partnership and marriage in our communities; across cultures, countries and generations. Riham decides otherwise, revealing those hidden conversations.
In this inventive new multimedia performance, from one of Palestine’s most exciting contemporary artists, you are invited to think differently about love; to shake off stereotypes, free yourself from old traditions and think about what you actually want. Combining video, music and performance, Riham mashes up interviews with friends, family and strangers, with songs and clips from the Arabic golden age of cinema, improvised performance and original film to explore the complexity of love and relationships.
This irreverent look at romance will resonate with anyone who has ever wondered: is this really all there is?
