The Last 15 Seconds

Theater: The Last 15 Seconds
Date & Time: Friday January 27, 2012 at 8pm
Location: MiST Theatre, University of Toronto Mississauga Campus
The Last 15 Seconds is a meeting of the minds, so to speak, between a suicide bomber and the man who was killed, alongside his family, as a result. Using movement, dance, video, vocals and text, this project explores the topic of terrorism. It starts from the tragic death of Syrian-American filmmaker Mustapha Akkad and his daughter Rima in a series of coordinated attacks that hit three prominent hotels in the Jordanian capital Amman in 2005. The work constructs an imagined physical and verbal dialogue between Mustapha Akkad and Rawad Jassem Mohammad Abed, the suicide bomber who carried out the explosion. The work also looks at the imagined lives and memories of both the victim and his killer as they revisit each other’s lives after their fatal encounter.
Created by Gary Kirkham (Writer)
Directed by Majdi Bou-Matar
Produced by The MT Space
