TAHA by Amer Hlehel

2 - 14 Apr 2024 | KC Arts Centre - Home of STC

A tour-de-force performance that captures the life story of Palestinian poet Taha Muhammad Ali.

TAHA by Amer Hlehel is a tribute to Palestinian poet Taha Muhammad Ali. Born in Saffuriya, Palestine, Taha Muhammad Ali became a celebrated poet on the world stage after captivating audiences with his moving poetry that beautifully captured the resilience, love, and enduring spirit of his people.​

Eloquently tracing Taha's journey from a humble shopkeeper in Palestine to a celebrated poet worldwide, the story unfolds from his ill-starred birth through the tragic wars that compelled his family to flee their homeland. Grappling with themes of displacement and lost identity, Taha's story is narrated with a poignant yet humorous voice.

Adapted from Adina Hoffman's acclaimed biography and under Amir Nizar Zuabi's direction, TAHA becomes an emotional tapestry, conveying sorrow, humour, resilience, and the tender humanity of this extraordinary artist.

TAHA is a story of love, a story of displacement, and a story of peace.

Actor Amer Hlehel unpacks his experience with the play, revealing the ongoing relevance of Taha Muhammad Ali's poetry.
