    Hobb Story: Instructions for Arab Love

    (France/Tunisia)

    Aristes Producteurs Associés

    Hobb Story brought together theatre, documentary film, music and sex education for a remarkably frank new work from one of Tunisia’s young theatrical voices.

    Hobb Story mixed live performance with the personal video testimonies of young Tunisians for a truly authentic reflection on love, relationships, gender and desire within Arab and Muslim communities. Audiences left with a better understanding of the lives and aspirations of young people in the Middle and Near East.

    This marked the beginning of LIFT’s four-year interrogation into the Middle East and Near East, which recognizes both the geo-political importance of the region and the groundswell of theatre emerging from its independent producers and companies.


    A sensual spectacle of drama, parody, love song and live performance mixed with personal video testimonies, Hobb Story - Instructions for Arab Love is a portrait of society through the dreams of love, desire and intimacy of individuals.
