Ibrahim Miari’s play, In Between, won the Best Show (First Place) at Thespis festival in Germany!!!

The jury’s comments: “ Starting from a personal experience within the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, Ibrahim Miari with delicacy and subtle irony poses the problem of identity, of being in the no man’s land, but rejected by everyone, or at least looked on with suspicion. A very original point of view, a sort of cinematographic subjective of the protagonist, gently transports is to the depth of his feelings. Although, paradoxically, surrounded by persons that being absolute and radical truths, it is the only character who has no voice in the chapter, is not represented on the scene, and on the scene does not pronounce a word: a metaphor of a human condition.”
