HIFA 1-6 May

And Here I Am

Theatre • Tickets: $12.00

A bitter sweet political comedy based on one man's true story and his odyssey in search of identity. Based on Ahmed Tobasi's personal coming of age story, AND HERE I AM is an epic voyage of self-discovery. Combining fact and fantasy, tragedy and comedy, spanning both the first Palestinian intifada and the second, we follow the protagonist through his transformation from resistance fighter to artist, his journey as a refugee from the West Bank to Norway and then back again.


In a series of tragicomic episodes vividly brought to life with music, dance and animation, we journey through this personal and political tale of occupation and resistance, fear and heroism, a life of self-pursuit and loyalty that transports us to the heart of the hardships, struggles and contradictions of a young man growing up under occupation and his pursuit for the true meaning of freedom.
