Marion Bott’s explosive new play Moormaid, directed by Zois Pigadas premiered on the 18th of April 2018 at the Arcola Theatre in London. Set in a flat in Berlin, an art teacher, Melissa (Sarah Alless-Shahkarami) and her former student Mehdi (Moe El-Bar) confront their expectations of freedom and disillusionment with contemporary society.

 

Moormaid is an unflinching portrait of individuals inextricably caught up in the fears and tensions gripping Europe today.

About the play

Actors preforming Moormaid the play

To choose is to commit, and to commit is to be free.’ Berlin. Eleven past eleven. Art teacher Melissa is about to do something drastic. Seeking a place to hide, her ex-pupil Mehdi interrupts her momentum. Both embark on a turbulent journey, painting and battling their way through the past.

“Commitment to creative passion is the path to both self-fulfilment and true freedom in Moormaid, and the characters explore different ways of expressing their pain and hope through art and dance. The choreography of the dance elements of the production bring the dialogue and the emotional conflict of these scenes to life.”
