About In the Eruptive Mode

In 2011, democratic uprisings erupted all over the Arab world. Citizens challenged their leadership and questioned regimes. From internationally acclaimed Anglo-Kuwaiti writer and director Sulayman Al-Bassam, In the Eruptive Mode presents six monologues of ordinary citizens — all women — caught in the violence and chaos of the Arab Spring. These visceral, poetic monologues with song capture unheard voices, each at their own precarious tipping point.
