It's Raining Pearls

A theatre piece from Dubai - about love, war, flight and the meaning of life


Airports are always only a setting for short scenes of our stories - from the beginning, the end or somewhere in the middle. What would it be like if the entire story, from start to finish, took place at an airport?

She is a traveller waiting for her flight at the airport, where he, actually a journalist, works as a baggage handler. They get to know each other when he helps her carry her luggage. They start a conversation that is interrupted by a loud explosion. As they wait to be rescued they try to combat their fears with role plays. Is this still in this world, or already in another?
