Absurd, provocative and fascinating
INTRODUCTIONA darkly funny, provocative and scathing portrait of Egypt following the revolution in Tahrir Square and the chaos of the Arab Spring.
With a title ironically alluding to da Vinci’s famous painting, The Last Supper takes place at a dinner party in the house of a typical affluent, bourgeois Cairo family, presenting a close-up view of Egypt’s rigidly class-led, patriarchal society. Revolution has come and gone, but for the ruling elite nothing has changed. Their conversation highlights the emptiness that overhangs the illusion of plenty, and the trivial, banal exchanges that masquerade as human interaction. Somehow, supper never arrives; instead, a feast of apathy, hypocrisy, absurdity and self-obsession is served.
Featuring a cast of 11 exceptional actors, The Last Supper proved a huge hit at the Festival d’Avignon in 2015. It has subsequently toured extensively, including visits to Paris, Berlin, Bologna, Brussels and Singapore.
Named by Newsweek as one of the Arab world’s most influential personalities, Ahmed El Attar’s razor sharp social commentary offers profound insight into important political and economic issues. Bold staging and lively humour make its critique all the more powerful.
