The Union by Rawya El Chab

April 24 & 25

The Union is an interactive performance inspired from “A Simple Sabotage Field Manual.” The document, recently declassified by the CIA, was used during the second world war to provide US sympathizers, in the heart of Nazi Germany, with the tools to sabotage the Nazi war machine without getting caught. By going over these few pages, it is hard not to come to the realization that we have witnessed these methods in action in our own grassroots organizations.  

The Union simulates a general assembly, and invites the audience/workers to take a collective decision and work together against the management. But “Union” is easier said than done!

Mixing Buffooneries, whimsical characters, and songs in a game show atmosphere, The Union wants us to catch the Saboteur within. 

Featuring: Sophia Moussa & Elsa Saadeh

Those Eyes, How Familiar They Seem by Annie White & Johnny Butler – April 13 & 25

The face in the misty lights

Footsteps that you hear down the hall

The laugh that floats on a summer night

Those eyes, how familiar they seem

That was Laura, but she’s only a dream
