Across Syria, many gardens conceal the dead bodies of activists and protesters who took to the streets during the early periods of the uprising.

As much an art installation as it is theatre, Gardens Speak depicts the human cost of the war by acquainting us with the life and death of 10 ordinary yet remarkable people who were buried in Syrian gardens.

Each story has been carefully constructed with the friends and family members of the deceased to retell their stories as they themselves may have recounted it.

A unique, unforgettable, interactive and immersive experience.

Limited capacity of 10 people per show. 

PLEASE NOTE: Latecomers cannot be admitted. This event has a strict no latecomers policy due to the set-up of the show. We advise to arrive 15 minutes early for your allocated time slot. Latecomers can not be admitted under any circumstance and unfortunately we would be unable to refund or exchange tickets to another time slot or show if you are late.
