Al-Barjawi 2000

A hidden love story between Musallam Al-Birjawi, a peddler, and Zarqa’, a local girl. This story is revealed through Musallam’s wandering to fulfil his people’s needs. However, in reality, the trip is a quest for experience, knowledge and assertiveness.

As if were just a dream, where the theater becomes the imagination of the dancers, when the storyteller comes to tell his people the Musallam Al-Birjawi story-based on Musallam’s personality in the popular story “Ma’asalameh Ya’ Imsalaam”. The story – teller take without leaving their places to other new worlds and spaces – and wake up gaining from this experience the sense of flying spirits and expansion of visions.
