On the evening of the 16th of October 1972 WAEL ZUAITER, a Palestinian intellectual, was shot and killed by two Israeli Mossad agents in Rome. Earlier that night he had been with his Australian fiancé, painter Janet venn Brown. Years later, Janet’s great-nephew radio producer Jesse Cox, traces the story of Wael and Janet from Italy to the Middle east and tries to uncover why he was killed.
Presented and narrated live onstage, WAEL ZUAITER: UNKNOWN weaves together audio interviews, evocative sound design and music against a stunning backdrop of projected illustrations and animation in this dramatic collision of documentary, graphic novel and theatre.
