Another Lover’s Discourse ليه خلّتني أحبك runs for 3 nights in London: 29, 30 & 31 October 2022, 6.30pm (65mins)
Three years ago, Riham embarked on a journey to explore what it means to love; what ideas do we have about it and what is holding her back from it?
Another Lover’s Discourse ليه خلّتني أحبك is Riham’s first solo performance created and performed by her. She mashes up interviews with friends, family and strangers, combining video, music, performance, and original film to explore the complexity of love and relationships.
This inventive new multimedia performance, from one of Palestine’s most exciting contemporary artists, invites you to think differently about love; to shake off stereotypes, free yourself from old traditions and think about what you actually want.
This irreverent look at romance will resonate with anyone who has ever wondered: is this really all there is?
