Riding on a cloud

Rabih Mroué




Pictures; one disappears and another appears. Most of the time, he doesn’t understand the connection between them. He needs someone who knows him well to set the pictures in motion.

In RIDING ON A CLOUD the acclaimed stage artist Rabih Mroué invites his brother Yasser to play the role of a character who, like himself, was injured in the Lebanese civil war and lost his ability to use words. Yasser began to shoot videos during his recovery. These fuse with his recounted memories on stage to form a subjective picture of the political developments in Lebanon. RIDING ON A CLOUD describes the fragile construction of biography, which emerges between political reality, memories, facts and fiction
