Aleateia participated in the 14th session of the Cairo International Festival for Experimental Theatre (CIFET) with a revamped version of A Heap of Broken Images. In the new version of the production, 6 people have been invited to a cocktail party where there is to be a reading of T. S. Eliot’s The Waste Land. But beneath this seemingly innocent reason for throwing a party, there lurks deeper, darker and more decadent thoughts in their host’s mind… The play presents the bitter struggle between decadence and redemption in uncompromising terms.
