We are sure you may have heard something of what’s happening in Iraq right now. Thousands of people protesting in the streets, harsh repression, many dead and wounded, political chaos. But the media and politicians in the West hardly pay attention. Perhaps this has to do with the standard image that the Western media present about the Arab world: inclined towards religious extremism and unable to value human rights and freedom. Or with politicians who quietly support looting the Middle East of its natural resources, without sharing their ethical dilemmas with their voters.

Theatre-maker Enkidu Khaled (Brussels) and writer-activist Chris Keulemans (Amsterdam), who also created the performance Bagdad in 2018, now offer a special programme to give the audience a direct view
of the current revolution in Iraq. With images of the uprisings, stories of eyewitnesses, skype conversations with people who have spent weeks and months demonstrating peacefully at the Freedom Square in Baghdad since last October.

Guests: Muna Al-Jaffal, Noof Assi, Dirk Adriaensens en Tine Danckaers.
