Palestinian actor mirrors suffering in exile

As part of its activities commemorating Land Day, the Deanship of Student Affairs at Birzeit University sponsored on March 5, 2017 a monodrama play on living in exile directed and presented by Palestinian artist Ghanam Ghanam.

Entitled "I Will Die in Exile," Ghanam showcased the impediments that Palestinians face at checkpoints, airports and various border lines.

Unlike other plays, the actor used simple staging and tools: a chair. The chair was then turned into a suitcase and finally, a tomb. No lights or music were required to convey the meaning.
