Let it be a tale is powerful, emotional and political

Palestinian artist Rafeef Ziadah at Lime Tree this Wednesdauy 24.

Palestinian poet and spoken word artist Rafeef Ziadah brings her powerful catalogue of poetry to the stage featuring selections from her albums ‘Three Generations’ and ‘We Teach Life’. 

With original musical compositions by Phil Monsour, this sequence of interconnected poems serves as a poignant and personal tribute to Palestine, chronicling Al-Nakba, exile, defiance, and survival. ‘Let it be a tale’ is a dedicated ode to Palestinian youth who still fly kites in the face of F16 bombers, who still remember the names of their villages in Palestine and still hear the sound of doves over Gaza.

Film-maker Ken Loach spoke about the artist stating, “Rafeef’s poetry demands to be heard. She is powerful, emotional and political. Please see her perform. You cannot then be indifferent to the Palestinian cause”

Let it be a tale plays at Lime Tree Theatre this Wednesday April 24 with live music by Phil Monsour, in memory of Palestinian poet and educator Refaat Alareer.
