In this video, Lisa Luxx speaks at Liverpool Arab Arts Festival 2019 about one of the inspirations beyond Eating the Copper Apple.
Eating the Copper Apple, commissioned by Liverpool Arab Arts Festival, is Lisa Luxx's debut theatre show.
It's a story, in verse, about unravelling her adoption and leaving Brexit England in search of her Syrian heritage. The premise for the journey is that your soul is not something that inherently lives within you, it's something you must go out into the world to collect.
It was due to premiere at Liverpool Arab Arts Festival in July 2020 for two nights, but due to COVID-19 will be postponed.
