After its premiere in 2009, Photo-Romance immediately become one of the most successful international theatre pieces and is now, after touring worldwide, is coming to Mousonturm in its newest version: in the roles of author and censor Lina Saneh and Rabih Mroué discuss the photo novella adaptation of a historical film document, which shows the enthusiasm of Italian crowds at Hitler’s Mussolini visit. The two of them – him, a former leftist activist, she, a divorced homemaker – met in Beirut in 2006 shortly after Israel’s attack on Lebanon: two lonely people, uncomfortable with the hubbub outside. By mixing fiction and reality, Photo-Romance deconstructs the political logic, as well as the illusion of theatre and shows “truth” to be a construction of possibilities.
