Performed by Mokhallad Rasem/Tonnelhuis
Iraq / Belgium

How does an Arab theatre director view the world situation? What does ‘waiting’ mean? Toneelhuis theatre-maker Mokhallad Rasem takes a modern-day look at Beckett’s Waiting for Godot and creates a 20-minute show.

Does your background play a role in what waiting means for you? Does waiting mean the same the world over? Does who or what you are waiting for make a difference? Under what circumstances do you wait?

There are numerous forms of waiting: waiting for papers, waiting for insight, waiting for the pain to pass, waiting for a letter, waiting for the return of the one you love, waiting for death, for God, for better times.… Waiting: a play in word and image.
