‘How do you translate this feeling?’
Bilal has always been obsessed with love stories. In this one-person show, he tells you his favourite – the true story of Palestinian poet and translator Wa’el Zuaiter. Join Bilal as he ventures through the orange groves of Jaffa, the piazzas in Rome, and the shisha bars of Edgware Road, piecing together this untold story, and asking what it means to be a Palestinian in the West.
