From the creator/performer of How to Disappear Completely.
Itai was born in Israel and lived there until the age of 25. Dima was born in Lebanon to a Lebanese mother and a Palestinian/Kuwaiti father. Her father’s side of the family is originally from Al Quds/Jerusalem Palestine where Dima has never been. What happens when you put... them onstage together?
In this new work, they will explore the conflict between their cultures and examine what is happening in their homelands, while challenging each other’s deeply ingrained values and beliefs. Both are natural storytellers and improvisers who are at ease ad-libbing in front of audiences. Both are combative and very passionate about the conflict in the Middle East, and both know a lot about its history and political context.Itai Erdal and Dima Alansari in This is Not a Conversation / Photo by Natasha Wheatley
