66 Minutes in DamascusT1013781046
Inspired by the descriptions of Syrian detention centres from foreign journalists and local activists arbitrarily incarcerated by the autocratic regime, 66 Minutes in Damascus puts the audience in the place of a group of tourists who visit the Syrian capital, only to be arrested by the Syrian secret service. Trapped in a web of intrigue and fear, the audience becomes similarly entangled in the strands of immersive, site-specific interactive theatre which Bourjeily has woven together throughout his career. Though located in the dark heart of one of the Middle East's most bloody regimes, 66 Minutes in Damascus also reflects the reality of life under autocratic governments across the world.
