Baghdad is a documentary theatre performance from Amsterdam, brought to Central European Forum 2018 by Enkidu Khaled and Chris Keulemans. A conversation between two worlds that do not want to talk to one another but have no other choice, two worlds represented by the young Iraqi, Enkidu, and his older Dutch friend, Chris. Both were born in the fabled city of Baghdad, not far from where the Bible locates Paradise on earth. Paradise that has turned into hell. 10 March 2018 at 7:00 pm at the Astorka-Korzo’90 Theatre.
