Tania El Khoury’s As far as my fingertips presents a conversation through a gallery wall between an audience member and a refugee. Through touch and sound, we share stories of people who have recently challenged border discrimination.
El Khoury creates interactive installations and performances in which the audience is an active collaborator.

Followed by post-show discussion with director Zoe Lafferty and performer Ahmed Tobasi.
A bittersweet, dark political comedy based on one man’s true story, and his epic odyssey in search for an identity. Written by award-winning Hassan Abdulrazzak, And Here I Am is based on actor Ahmed’s Tobasi’s own coming of age story.
It combines fact and fantasy, tragedy and comedy, as we follow the protagonist through a transformation from armed resistance fighter to artist and refugee, spanning both the first and second Palestinian intifadas.
In partnership with Shubbak Festival and Unity Theatre. A Developing Artists Production.
