Tales of a City By The Sea

Tales of a City By The Sea (EPUB ebook)

By Sabawi, Samah

<span >'If only our bodies were bulletproof If only our boats were made of steel If only our dreams were real.' <span > Gaza, 2008. A Palestinian journalist writes poetry on the beach. A doctor must decide to stay or leave. Then come the missiles and the phosphorus showers. This ...is a furious and tender exploration of the fragility of freedom. The national collides with the personal as activism and reporting take to the stage. <span >Tales of a City by the Sea<span > uses poetry, tenderness and humour to explore the love between those who have choices, and those who do not. Language fails us when it comes to displacement and grief; yet Samah Sabawi's language cracks grief open and remains present, like the sea. <span >Tales of a City by the Sea<span > was staged twice in 2014: at La Mama Theatre in Melbourne and at the Aida refugee camp in Palestine.
