Under a low sky

UNDER A LOW SKY is a succession of unusual, unexpected, familiar or impossible meetings, both a long narrative and a fragmented text. Like puzzle parts, memories try to bring back personal stories and what was Syria. Like puzzle parts, memories try to bring back personal stories and what Syria used to be. Two men – director and author Wael Ali and video maker Jamal – undergo travel in time way back to the colonial archive to catch this same territory at the moment of its evolution towards a state. They explore colonial archives to reach as far back as the time when the Syrian state was born.

How to cope with today if yesterday is gone? How to do theatre in a period of war when we are out of the country? What is the context of the theatre we create, and who do we create for? The show mixes two types of writing, intimate and political, questioning their limits. It also creates a dialogue between different temporalities and several ways of looking at the same object, the same territory in an escape.

The show is in French and Arabic with Bulgarian subtitles.

Knife & Shaker have always been fans of street food, and what better describes street food in Plovdiv than doners! We remember them from the time when they were 2 for 1 BGN and if you drop a piece of meat it would become vegetarian.

At the next edition of the tasty event, we will try a really good doner accompanied by a great drink.
