THE SYNOPSIS OF SARAI

Sarai has been promised that she will be the founder of a new nation, its sovereignty established upon an old land.

But first she must contend with the most formidable of forces – famine, disease, persecution and civil war. Her courage and wisdom are tested to its limits...

THE TREATMENT

The merging of an intercultural philosophical practice served to highlight humanity’s increasing struggle to cope with its duality and its oneness.

The movement and music was exceptional and worked in unison with the story.
— Samantha Lahai-Taylor, Cultural Adviser, Southwark
The drama, music and choreography worked so well together to tell a powerful story.
— Tony Panayiotou, Consultant to Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse Theatres
