AWAN presents for the first time in the UK a brand new work-in-progress, “Another Lover’s Discourse” by Riham Isaac one of Palestine most exciting artists.
This Bride that a society expects. This Love that the society wants. This Love that we keep waiting for. What is it? Are we happily in love?
Riham has tried chasing the perfect romantic relationship that society taught her to expect.
But now she finds herself running in the opposite direction. In this brand new work-in-progress, she attempts to find out why: seeking answers from the philosophers, the singers and the old Egyptian movies where she first learnt about love, hoping they can help her to heal.
A personal journey exposing the fantasies, myths and despair of intimate love, this inventive new multimedia work from one of Palestine’s most exciting contemporary artists combines comedy and grotesque, inviting us to shake off what we’ve been told to hope for so we can figure out what we really want.
Riham Isaac is a multi-disciplinary artist working with performance, acting, singing, music, dance, moving image, and installation.
