Created by Ahmed Moneka, Jesse LaVercombe and Seth Bockley
ATRIA Theatre and Soulpepper Theatre production
Produced by La MaMa in association with The Public Theater’s Under the Radar Festival

 

KING GILGAMESH & THE MAN OF THE WILD is a one-act theater-music production featuring Ahmed Moneka and Jesse LaVercombe alongside acclaimed Arabic-maqam / jazz band, Moneka Arabic Jazz. A present-day story of friendship interweaves with the ancient Mesopotamian Epic of Gilgamesh, along the way tracing Ahmed's real life journey from an actor-refugee in a new country to an acclaimed musician at the top of his game. Featuring themes of art, ambition, sex, fatherhood, mortality, and identity, this two-man epic spans centuries, cultures, and continents, illuminating the mysteries of love, death, and friendship in a moving, funny, tragic, and ultimately celebratory performance.
