In the Lost and Found: La Valise Rouge
Lana Nasser, Jordan


"I was not always a woman, an Arab, or a Muslim, these things only came with time, at first I thought I was just ... Insan: human." 'In the Lost and Found' premiered at the 2011 ‘Aat festival’ (in Arabic and English), after which it toured in New York, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. The play was recently awarded the 2011 Etel Adnan Award for Arab Women Playwrights. This single show represents a new experiment: it incorporates the French language into the script, this enriching the piece or simply complicating it.
