This longform narrative spoken word performance is inspired by Tunisian emcee, Weld-El 15 who was pursued and eventually jailed for performing his song, Boulicia Kleb (The Police Are Dogs). Through this lens, the piece touches on censorship, the solitude of self-imposed exile, civil disobedience and abuse of authority, while juxtaposing cuts from controversial tracks closer to home
