A captivating musical performance unfolds through a series of interconnected scenes, embarking on a personal journey led by live music. The journey begins in the neighbor’s kitchen and ends in the diaspora. In this performance, we are enchanted by the melodies of the Oud, Electric Guitar, and the rhythms of the neighbor’s kitchen tools.
Guided by the narration and the music, we traverse from one event to another, seamlessly weaving threads of memory, reality, and aspirations. This kitchen and its reigning queen, the neighbor, forge the morals, ethics, and social constructs that limit one’s dreams.
What is the cost of trying and failing? How can our surroundings influence both the attempt and the outcome? What is belonging?
