In Nini ya Momo do, Soukaina Habiballah interweaves the voice of a grandmother and her granddaughter, who speak to each other through the absence of the mother. The first is haunted by postcolonial trauma; the second, by postpartum depression.

How can one invent a dance shaped by this cohabitation?

A wife and a husband, two thespian lovers, walk us down memory lane in a city with wounds wide open. Remnants of their life journey on stage, and through all stages of their life. All that remains of happiness and a dance performance before the curtain falls.
Directed by Omar Ghayatt, The Lucky Children is an homage to vanished memories. In a dream-like journey, the past and present of three people interest and seem to happen simultaneously – moments of becoming and passing dissolve into one another. Who are we without memories? How do they shape our view of the world and our relationships with each other? This visually powerful theatre performance with atmospheric sound is an invitation into a sensual world; into other realities, lives, and into a being that seems simultaneously distant and yet, so close and familiar…
