Nearly a decade after the burial of their son, HE and SHE have broken apart. But when they are confronted with the news that their son’s cemetery is closing and his grave must be relocated, they are forced to reunite. Angry, jaded, but ever curious, they meet.

Unearthing wounds once silenced, their meeting becomes an exercise in manipulation, a grapple of the past, and a fight for domination.

"Sara Aniqah Malik’s production carefully modulates the minor shifts in key, the playing out of the conversation as coffee turns to wine and cheese...Beautifully etched work." Kris Hallett, Life as Theatre

SALAAM is a moving new play that explores the relationship between a mother and a daughter as they face mounting Islamophobia, throwing their lives into turmoil. Combining live music and lyrical language, SALAAM is an experimental and political piece of theatre that charts the cycle of Islamist terrorism and Islamophobia, and the way it affects the everyday Muslim.

PRESS
"an exquisite portrait of a mother and daughter—and what is said and left unsaid in their relationship." Lyn Gardner
"[There is] the right mix of intimacy and claustrophobia...The daily rhythms of their lives – ablutions, prayers, fasting rituals – are evoked in synchronised movements accompanied by a violinist and vocalist. These are glimmers of beauty..." The Guardian
"Sara Aniqah Malk’s script is both pure and real...The depth to these characters is never ending, I felt like I’d known them for years through the intimacy they lay bare on stage." everythingtheatre
"Salaam is about stillness in a chaotic world...conveying the tension and disparity between peace in one’s own space and a true, inner serenity." BreakingTheFourthWall

Director/Adaptor                             Sara Aniqah Malik

Assistant Director                             Katie Edwards

Designer                                           Sophie Altham

Composer                                        Jaren Feeley

                                                      

In this reimagining of 'The Tempest', racial tensions brew and simmer to the surface. Centuries of oppression and subjugation erupt into an explosion of defiance and reclamation. 

Combining Shakespeare's timeless text with live performance poets, this production creates a unique dialogue and fearlessly situates it within 2016.
