Irakese geesten

What is war? What is winning? What is losing? Rasem tackles this complex theme with the necessary lightness and humour in a theatrical language which surprisingly transcends the cultural differences.

Iraqi by birth, theatre director and actor by training and an Antwerp resident for the last six years, in 2013 Mokhallad Rasem will become a new Toneelhuis-maker. In 2010 Rasem put himself on the theatrical map with Iraqi Ghosts, a dynamic play about the impact of war on his generation. Impossible to comprehend for the Western spectator, bitter reality for the twenty-somethings who have spent a large chunk of their lives at war. “What is war? What is winning? What is losing? Rasem tackles this complex theme with the necessary lightness and humour, together with two actors who fled Iraq and two Flemish-German actresses in a theatrical language which surprisingly transcends the cultural differences. Iraqi Ghosts won the Young Theatre Prize at the 2010 Theater aan Zee festival in Ostend and then successfully toured Belgium and abroad.

Van Irakese geesten naar Romeo & Julia

Mokhallad Rasem is theatermaker, regisseur en vaak ook acteur in zijn eigen voorstellingen. Beeldreporter Lynn Van Oijstaeijen volgde hem en zijn collega-acteurs onderweg naar Luik. Op het internationaal gerichte Festival de Liège speelde de (voorlopig) laatste voorstelling van Irakese geesten, de productie uit 2010 waarmee de ploeg zich op de landkaart zette.  Lynn maakte een beeldverslag en sprak met Mokhallad.
