Fourteen young Moroccan newcomers to a reception center for minors in Spain agree to participate in a theatre workshop. It is the thin line that separates their recent past from their uncertain future. What is theatre but a full experience of the present?
(2019-2001) ذكرى المرحوم عبد الصمد العبودي
IN MEMORY OF ABDESSAMAD EL ABOUDI (2001-2019)
Ahir/demà [Yesterday/tomorrow] family is very sad today. Extremely sad. One of the young boys who took part in our documentary, one of the protagonists, our brother Abdessamad El Aboudi, died in Barcelona yesterday afternoon. We are devastated. Together with Abdessamad, we shared the experience of the workshop given by Jesús Muñoz and Pau Pons, of the Pont Flotant theatre company, at the Reception Centre for Minors in Buñol, Valencia. He joined in with great enthusiasm. His energy was powerful. He was skilled, intelligent and very talented. During those sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays he was happy. He also agreed to participate in the documentary we made to tell that story. In the film he could not transmit more happiness and life. Today, dear Abdessamad, son, brother, nephew, friend, we remember you. You are now a part of us.https://vimeo.com/257601917
