Berber Boy is a subversive new autobiographical theatre show; part coming-of-age story, part culture-fuck, and a very Irish discussion about Tunisian identity – and if that confuses the hell out of you, you’ve got the idea…
This performance will feature a 30 minute long Post-Show Q&A with the creator of the piece entitled ‘Identity politics and creative handcuffs’.
Moncef sits outside a Dublin meeting room. He’s auditioning for the role of a lifetime: disgraced Tunisian President Zine el Abidine Ben Ali.
Moncef’s passport has the name Peter on it.
Ben Ali wants to give him acting advice.
A leprechaun has been summoned.
Salt crystals and watermelon pips gather at the edges of this high strangeness.
