SIFA 2018 | Verses of Love and Life – Selected Poems of Taha Muhammad Ali by Aidli Mosbit (Singapore)

Description

Discover the poetry of celebrated Palestinian poet Taha Muhammad Ali in this enthralling evening of poetry and music. Find yourself carried away on the crests and troughs of life evoked by the master storyteller’s verses that speak so disarmingly of his experiences — from love lost, to an exodus from home, and finally of personal equanimity.

The power of Taha’s gentle poetry comes from his unflinching channelling of his experiences living in exile as a child in a Lebanon refugee camp and his unfailing ability to rise above personal tragedy to celebrate life, love and human dignity. The evening will feature poetry from So What, a translated English selection of the poet’s beloved works from 1971 to 2005.

Rounding up the sensorial experience are performers Azrin Abdullah, Farez Najid, Rebekah Sangeetha Dorai, Tan Shou Chen & Riduan Zalani. Under the direction of theatre practitioner and educator Aidli Mosbit.

(45m, no intermission)
