Ich Bin Wie Du KLOPPEND HERT / HAIDER AL TIMIMI

The quest for what binds people together will challenge your view on our society. In Arab land the people are strong and tall. Proud and sentimental. Open minded and almost perfect. In Neverland the people are soft and beautiful. Rich and enterprising. Rather closed and also almost perfect. In Belgium it rains. Haider shaves his toes, waiting for spring. The Iraqi, who lives in Ghent, Haider Al Timimi searches for freedom and the possibility to be who you want to be by combining variety and stand-up. He shows us the complications that come with you when you’re from another part of the world. He loses himself in his obsession for Fairuz - let’s say she’s the Arabian Nancy Sinatra, who became the symbol of desire for freedom in the Middle-East. Personal emotions melt with icons of the Western and Arabian world in this deeply, intercultural performance. Nominated for the Theaterfestival 2013 – Circuit x. “Haider Al Timimi shows his many talents during his clever, moving solo-performance (...). A beautiful piece of Euro-Arab.” (****De Volkskrant)
