2010 / Drama theater - operah house Damascus - Syria
Rhythm, Love, Passion, Patience, Light, Truth, Trait, Spirit, Prayer
Inspired by these nine words, Puzzle tells stories from the lives of the Syrian youth. The performers express emotions and views on their troubles; those which aren’t different from what the men and women of our day and age face, anywhere in the world. The pieces of the characters’ stories and the challenges they endure are assembled into the “puzzle”.
Like a game of puzzle, the pieces are sometimes connected in place, and in other times, they are separated and lost. In Puzzle, Sima concentrated on nuances and presented its dancers in a different way; each and every one of them was both a dancer and an actor.
