Ali Chahrour is an atypical artist who can combine deep human questions and traditions of the Arab world with live music and dance. He previously presented "Leila's Death" in Potsdam in 2016, the second part of his trilogy on mourning rituals, which was subsequently performed at the Festival d'Avignon. With "May He Rise ...", the final part of his trilogy, he deals with the subject of masculinity and grief. "A boy bites his tongue, even if the heart is torn," Chahrour learned as a child when his father died. For men do not cry. Men in tears are a taboo that touches on the essence of manhood. Chahrour makes a man's cause out of grief, questioning his own identity as well as the handed-down legacies and inheritance, as well as the relationship of the body to holiness, religion and power.
