Can art really save the world? Enkidu Khaled fled Baghdad in 2008. His award-winning show is a unique form of creative exchange. Based on traumatic events he witnessed years back, he invites the audience to join him in analysing and simplifying the complex process of making theatre from personal experience. In four easy steps he creates a new performance every night, showing how memory, association and tiny fragments of ideas can become a story and how simple decisions can have devastating effect. The name Enkidu means ‘reason’: his method is trying to make sense.

Enkidu Khaled studied theatre in Baghdad, before settling and working in Belgium.

“Enkidu Khaled powerfully transcends the dilemma and the self-involvement typical of most one-man-shows.” - Al Arte Magazine (Belgium)
