Does it matter where we live and how comfortable we are when we are deprived of the one thing that most people around us take for granted?
Salim, a young man, has lived in London for over 10 years. He has a steady job and a healthy social life but there is a feeling that he wrestles with constantly.
When friends start to take an interest in Salim’s home, Salim is faced with a bittersweet feeling; the pleasure that those close to him want to discover his homeland mixed with the frustration that they can journey there with the ease of holidaymakers, travelling a route that is totally off limits to him.
Through Al Zaytouna’s artful mix of dabke, contemporary dance and theatre performed to a ground shaking mix of modern electronic and traditional beats the play questions the nature of solidarity movements and explores the complex experience of exile, identity and homesickness.
