by Rabih Mroué, feat. Rima Khcheich / IN ARABIC WITH ENGLISH AND GERMAN SURTITLES
Director: Rabih Mroué
In “Rima Kamel”, Rabih Mroué traces the early career of the Lebanese singer Rima Khcheich. Khcheich – and inseparably connected with her, the child singer Rima Kamel – enter a dialogue and embark on a journey into her past, all the way back to childhood and an archive of memories, as well as collected and hidden objects. These are linked to the question of her origins and the hopes that were once pinned on Rima Kamel, the child singer. With reference to the individual history of a single person, Mroué shows how biographies are always marked by the cultural and political situation of a country. Intertwined with the history of Lebanon, which is a society between modernity and tradition, Rima Khcheich turns to the singer Rima Kamel to explore forgetting and memory and to reveal the burdens of the past, which extend into the present.
Rabih Mroué, an actor, director and author from Lebanon, continues his collaboration with the Kammerspiele. “Ode to Joy”, his first work in this context, focused on the Munich massacre at the Olympics in 1972 in order to investigate terrorism. It particularly explored the relationship of Palestinians to this story from a critical and from a personal perspective. Mroué’s artistic pursuit is dedicated to finding strategies for the use of media when representing political topics. Personal and cultural dimensions are always important in his works, as is the question to what point the images in the media influence our perception.
