Desert Project

A new journey into the poetry of the desert – the play of light and shadow to the rhythm of the camel’s tread.

In November 2019 we held a Workshop on new material which dramatises ancient and modern Arab poetry and the lives of the poets.

This rite of passage drama tells the plight of the uprooted and their quest for Self.

With grateful thanks to participants, Moronkẹ Akinola, Afolabi Alli, Shala Nyx, Jason Yeboa, Ali Zayn. Dramatised and directed by Peter Sturm with contemporary poetry by Adnan Al-Sayegh. Photos Francesco Cincotta.
