Beirut’s Metro Al-Madina venue will host a live show considered the first of its kind in Lebanon this weekend.
“From the Heart of the Collapse” is a comic, theatrical, musical show that will unfold in Beirut and stream online for audiences in Lebanon and abroad this Saturday.
The satirical show will tackle various issues, from the beginning of the decline of the country’s living conditions in 2019 and the protests that erupted in October that year to the pandemic that followed months later and the economic crisis that envelopes Lebanon today.
It will also shed light on the August 4th explosion while demonstrating how all of these events have impacted the lives of the Lebanese and how people coped with the collapse, in a mixture of musical performances and comedic sketches.
The upcoming event will be presented virtually to audiences in Lebanon and abroad due to the prevailing coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, via the online AraTok platform.
According to Hisham Jaber, the director of “From the Heart of the Collapse” and the founder of Metro Al-Madina, the show will be the first of its kind in Beirut to be broadcast live and online to the public without their presence in the theatre.
Tickets are available for purchase, here for Lebanon residents, and here for other countries. The show will kick off at 2 PM, Saturday, November 28th.
