Part of the Shubbak Festival
Amer Hlehel tells the moving story of Palestinian poet Taha Muhammed Ali, directed by Young Vic Associate Artist Amir Nizar Zuabi.
Forced from his home in Galilee in 1948, Taha and his family must face the reality of war. At a young age he supports his family, immerses himself in literature, teaches himself Arabic – and falls in love. Growing up in a world where stability is only ever fleeting, poetry becomes a comforting constant.
