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.
3 years ago, Riham embarked on a journey to explore what it means to love; what ideas do we have about it and what is holding her back from it?
Another Lover’s Discourse ليه خلّتني أحبك is Riham’s first solo performance created and performed by her. She mashes up interviews with friends, family and strangers, combining video, music, performance, and original film to explore the complexity of love and relationships.
This inventive new multimedia performance, from one of Palestine’s most exciting contemporary artists, invites you to think differently about love; to shake off stereotypes, free yourself from old traditions and think about what you actually want.
This irreverent look at romance will resonate with anyone who has ever wondered: is this really all there is?
Age guidance: 14 yrs + (contains adult themes and strong language)
