Performance: No Demand No Supply

Performance: No Demand No Supply

One of the most striking events of the month was "No Demand No Supply" – a performance conceived and directed by Sahar Assaf in collaboration with the American University of Beirut (AUB) Theater Initiative.

The performance was based on interviews with Syrian women and delivered a reading of Lebanon’s 2016 sex trafficking scandal, capturing the harrowing ordeal of the survivors of the Chez Maurice “torture chambers” where a group of Syrian women were trafficked and tricked into prostitution. Performers narrated the tortures experienced by these women, held captive for 9 months without sunlight and fresh air, and raped on average 10 times daily.

The purpose of this powerful and moving performance is to leave us angry, motivated to fight for justice, and perhaps will trigger conversations around the most lucrative business in modern day history. The theatre performance is unapologetically by women, about women, and told from women’s perspective.
