COFFEE, TEA & CIGARETTES

Coffee, Tea & 25 Cigarettes is an informal evening about Arab Australian contemporary theatre over the last 25 years.

Artists who have been making Arab-centred performances in Australia – in English and/or Arabic – will share visuals and personal stories – Aanisa Vylet, Alissar Gazal, Assad Abdi, Claudia Chidiac, Michael Mohammed Ahmad, Paula Abood, Saleh Saqqaf, Samah Sabawi, Wahibe Moussa.

This event has been inspired by remembering “Cafe Hakawati” – a ground breaking community theatre production, developed by Death Defying Theatre with Arab Australian communities in 1991, at the time of the so-called First Gulf War.

A night of short presentations – produced by Arab Theatre Studio in partnership with Urban Theatre Projects and Bankstown Arts Centre – gathering some of our contemporary cultural histories with the aim of having critical conversations.
