A tribute to the poet and oracle El Malaika and a swan song to the warm, defiant, nocturnal joy of life in the Middle East
Laundry of legends is based on the poem New Year by Nazik El Malaika, from Iraq, which passed away in 2007. A desperate and dark poem but at the same time a brave furious cry. Nazik was a revolutionary poet who wrote about the death, the liberation of Arab women and the dark tide that ravaged her life.
Laundry of Legends will give the playful and generous power of Malaika's statement that a death poem is an opportunity to gather to share. It is a time machine and at the same time a tool with healing powers.
The performance is performed in English.

Played 3 times on Friday and 3 times on Saturday. Duration: about 35 min
"My work on death in the Arab world is not about an inalienable identity. Quite the opposite. Herein lies the necessity: to regain the playful and generous power of the narrative. I use Malaika's provocative claim that death is a place of gathering and sharing. ”
