Why do some have the right to live elsewhere, but not others? Who says that frontiers can't be altered? Doesn't the earth belong to everyone living on it and isn't everyone on a journey? And where are they going ­to damnation or paradise? The Festival has invited Belgo-Palestinian film-maker Michel Khleifi, a man sensitive to frontiers, to cross the borders of cinema into theatre, where he trained initially. These essential questions are being asked in a production about the cultures that co-exist in Brussels today. It is the tale of two men on the run.

Concept & direction: Michel Khleifi
