Lost, or the Idiot’s Guide to American TV Series & Palestine

Ahmed El Attar

A presentation about Ahmed El Attar’s new work in progress (for professionals only).

The process of Ahmed El Attar and the Temple (Independent Theater) Company’s work is based on questions, trials and errors and a long and uncertain road towards the unknown. In this new piece, El Attar questions the reasons behind his strong links with Palestine.
Why does a 42 year old Egyptian with a wide open door to the world still concern himself with the Palestinian conflict? What are the mechanisms behind his strong feelings and emotions about the subject? And how does the essence of American TV series reflect the American vision about the conflict and its solutions?
