The Substation and Urban Theatre Projects presents The Tribe
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
The Substation, 1 Market Street, Newport
Performed by Hazem Shammas, The Tribe is a story of belonging and family, told by the small boy, Bani. At the heart of The Tribe is Bani’s love for his grandmother, a core presence in his life, who carries all the truths of ‘The Tribe’ – a small Muslim sect who fled to Australia from Lebanon. Taking place in a Newport backyard, performed alongside cellist and composer Oonagh Serrard, based on Michel Mohammed Ahmad’s award-winning novel, The Tribe is an open invitation to listen to an Arab-Australian story from our backyard, in our backyards.
