Seen last year in Krzysztof Warlikowski’s Phaedra(s) at the Barbican, actress and singer Norah Krief felt a burst of nostalgia remembering her mother listening to the Egyptian Diva Umm Kulthum on their record-player. Accompanied by a trio of musicians, Frederic Fresson, Lucien Zerrad and Yousef Zayed, she reinterprets Ibrahim Nagi’s famous poem Al Atlal (The Ruins), a personal and autobiographical work about the remains of lost love and homeland.
