FFF | Rabih Mroué: Riding on a cloud


5 May 2014
Upper Stage
The title of the idiosyncratic and moving “family” performance Riding on a Cloud is borrowed from a poetry collection by Yasser Mroue, Rabih’s brother. The two brothers share top billing in this performance in which Yasser comments on the events that redefined his existence and his dreams in his own way, reciting his poems, while Rabih demystifies a series of constructed narratives relating to the events of the war in order to call into question established perceptions and collective self-delusions.
