IN THE ERUPTIVE MODE
Running time, 65 minutes 
2012––16
A series of explosive monologues for female voices exploring the themes of violence and desire in the contemporary Arab world. Mocking, visceral and poetic, the performance creates a sound board of individuals caught in the convulsions of political and social change.

Created in two distinct iterations (2012 and 2015) the final production presents a new form of approach to scenic space in Al Bassam's first collaboration with award winning French Designer, Eric Soyer.

Performed in English and Arabic (with surtitles)
Running time: 65 minutes without interval

Premiere: The Sydney Festival (V1 2012); Dar Al Athar Al Islammiyyah, Kuwait (V2, 2015)
