Riksteatern and Malmö Stadsteater

I Call My Brothers (2013)

Jonas Hassen Khemiri

Directed by: Farnaz Arbabi

Did you hear what happened? A car. An explosion. In the city.

A crime is committed. A town paralyzed with fear. The main character in Jonas Hassen Khemiris new play is lost in a landscape of paranoia trying to act as normal. But what is normal? Who is a potential criminal? And what happens when suspicious looks are cast towards yourself?

I Call My Brothers is a funny and angry debate on our prejudices against other people and each other. Nothing is what it seems to be. An everyday task ends up in a police hunt. A friendly wave is turned into a death threat. A phone call becomes a message from The Other Side. I become you, which becomes us.

I Call My Brothers started as a column Khemiri published in December 2010 – one week after the suicide bombing in Stockholm.

Performed in Swedish with English surtitles
