Noorderzon: Khashabi Theatre / Bashar Murkus
Arabic spoken with Dutch subtitles
The comparison is an uneasy one, but terrorism and theatre share a common feature: they are both conceived with an audience in mind. The fascinating yet unnerving The Museum brings together two men, on the night before one of them will be executed. He has been sentenced to death for a horrific bombing in an art museum, and the brutal murder of 49 school children and their teacher. His wish to also die at the time failed and he was apprehended. Now after 7 years his last wish is to meet the detective who investigated his case. Risky, violent and manipulative games between the men ensue, games that can only be played on just such a last night. Games in which they seek the meaning of the death they wish upon themselves or on the other. Palestinian director Bashar Murkus introduces us to the murky depths of the grey zone between humanity and inhumanity.
“A representation that is not ideological but deeply human, that does not give answers if not absurdly to that violence which in any case is a human act with deep roots in the psyche of those who practice it.” – Giuliano Longo, Cinquequotidiano
