“Era of Whales” - 2005
The Era of Whales, a theatre production that raises prickly questions on the nature of terrorism, its perspective, sources and types through the highlighting of five characters who differ in their benefits, allegiance and interests.
In the middle of the ocean, five passengers on an undercover shipping boat that carries dangerous weapons, coming from a manufacturing country to a region that uses it. During the trip, the weapon dealer tries to be friendly with the travelers to guarantee security on the boat. He succeeded in getting close to the journalist who is always looking for the truth. She meets a young man who was arrested prejudicially when he tried to understand the reasons behind the continuous willingness of human beings for destruction. He unjustly spent two years in prison. By accident, he discovers the weapons on the boat and strives to stop it from reaching its destination. A set of games and pressures were carried out by the dealer and his political partner on the ship’s passengers, while the musician forms the filter that attempts to soothe the conflict between the characters.
