And Here I am is an epic journey of an activist, prisoner and refugee from the Palestinian West Bank, a journey of both seeking identity and self-discovery. Through intertwining fact and fantasy, the tragic and the comic, through the First and the Second Palestinian Intifadas, we follow the protagonist Ahmed Tobasi and his transformation from an armed insurgent fighter to artist, from Palestine to Norway and back. Through a series of tragic-comic episodes, he leads us into the heart of distress, fight and the paradoxes of a young Palestinian man, who grew up under the occupation, and his efforts to reach the true meaning of freedom. A text based on the motifs of Tobasi’s life was written by the many times awarded author Hassan Abdulrazzak.

Performance will be followed by talk with the artists.
