Explore the reality of young Emirati women in a reprise production of this poetic contemporary theater work, developed at NYU Abu Dhabi.

Award winning director Joanna Settle and NYUAD Alumni Reem Almenhali present a revival of the 2020 theater production that explores the depth and diversity of life as a woman in the UAE. Weaving rich Arabic and English language poetry with a backdrop of images and movement, Al Raheel, Departure explores womanhood and the future. It reflects on a body that stays while a world changes.

The performance has been collaboratively developed from a series of poems written in response to women persisting and developing across childhood, womanhood, and aging. Al Raheel, Departure is co-commissioned by The Arts Center at NYU Abu Dhabi and Cultural Foundation.
