Khalid Amine's presentation seeks to explore processes of performance cultures' interweaving in Arab Theatre today. Such Theatre is construed within a liminal space, on the borderlines between sameness and difference.The transposition of traditional performance behavior to a theatre building spells out this hybrid state of indecision. (Der Vortrag findet auf Englisch statt.)
