ÍDEM 2017. International Festival of the Scenic Arts

Made in Paradise was created in 2008 and toured until 2014. The play criticises a social, political and media phenomenon that has fed into the daily presentation of current events since 11 September, 2001, and even before that: fear of Islam.

The ÍDEM festival presents the premiere of the Spanish version of the show.

Creation and performance: Yan Duyvendak & Omar Ghayatt

Played by Nour Sobh
