A warm welcome to Rémi Sarmini as an Artists at Risk (AR) Resident at AR-Tunis!
Rémi Sarmini is a Syrian theatre director, actor, educator and founder of the theatre collective Tajroubeh Troupe. He is currently based in Tunis where he has had a year-long residency with Art Veda, AR’s partner in Tunisia. During this difficult time, Artists at Risk (AR) is pleased to be able to support Sarmini with this new AR Covid-19 Emergency Fund Residency in collaboration with Art Veda.
As an artist in residence at Art Veda, Sarmini wrote and directed “First Class الدرجة الأولى”, a play exploring social and global topics, such as boundaries and discrimination, and the emotional state of waiting. He also directed “Aurore en bouche” which he adapted from Haya Hsin’s text, “l’acteur X”, the play was produced by Art Veda and El Teatro Tunis. He is currently working at El Teatro as a drama teacher.
Sarmini will be working on a new theatre project called Rémi sans famille (Rémi without family) during his residency at AR-Tunis. Based on the French novel Sans Famille written by Hector Malot in 1878, this semi-autobiographical play will tell the story of a boy named Rémi who has grown up without his family and travelled from country to country searching for them. Sarmini hopes to arrange a European tour for Rémi sans famille to share his message on an international stage.
