A chat with Nadim Sawalha


Post the play, we're having a chat with the writer of the "Rest Upon the Wind" about his ten years research on Khalil Gibran, about Gibran and his work, and Arab poetry. This is an interactive panel, so the audience will also have a chance to join our conversation with Nadim too.

Nadim first worked as a radio programs producer for the BBC Arabic Service. Since then he has worked extensively on the London Stage, TV and in international films including Syriana. Two years ago he starred in the title role of the film ‘Captain Abu Raed’, for which he won the award for best actor at the Dubai International Film Festival in December 2007 and three more internationally. He has written and staged four other pieces, including ‘Love In Andalucia’ & memoirs of 12th Century Spain. In 1997 Nadim was both surprised and delighted to be the subject of This is Your Life for BBC1.
