Farid Fairuz

Realia (Bucharest/Beirut)

Part of "Good Guys Only Win in Movies"


English /  60 min

The performance combines temporal layers, real and fictional events from the life of a character that simultaneously has two identities: Mihai Mihalcea, born in Bucharest, and Farid Fairuz, born in Beirut. Fairuz’ approach underlines the ability of today’s culture to impose the unreal and the fictional as realities, as components of a realm that blurs the line between the possible, the virtual and the real.
