غياب - Absence by Lara Kanso

Join for “Absence”, a play written and directed by Lara Kanso next April at Theatre Tournesol. She has very generously put the function of Tuesday, April 9th to the benefit of “Stand For Women”.

We hope to see many of you that night supporting Lara as well as our cause!
🎭 "Absence" tells the story of the female body and its ancestral memory. Stories of oppressed and adulterated women gradually fade to give way to funny and sensual stories. "Absence" leans lovingly on the wounds of the female body, oscillating between pain and desire, within patriarchal societies. Juggling between day and night, the body and the city, memory, and oblivion, the women in "Absence" plow the scene and say their fears and fantasies.
The reference books that inspired "Absence": Marguerite Yourcenar's "Widow Aphrodissia", Freidoune Sahebjam's "The stoned woman", Sayd Bahodine Majrouh's "Suicide and Song", and "Women who run with the wolves" of Clarissa Pinkola Estès.

The play is in Arabic with French subtitles
