Taha

Taha

Amer Hlehel tells the moving story of Palestinian poet Taha Muhammed Ali, directed by Young Vic Associate Artist Amir Nizar Zuabi. Forced from his home in Galilee in 1948, Taha and his family must face the reality of war. At a young age he supports his family, immerses himself in literature, teaches himself Arabic - and falls in love. Growing up in a world where stability is only ever fleeting, poetry becomes a comforting constant. Based on Adina Hoffman’s book My Happiness Bears No Relation to Happiness and adapted by Chay Yew, Zuabi’s production mirrors the poet’s deft intertwining of the personal and the political. Amer Hlehel conjures the sights and sounds of his life in Nazareth.
