Rabih Mroué (b. 1967, lives in Beirut) is an actor, director, playwright, visual artist, and a contributing editor for The Drama Review (TDR). His complex and diverse practice, spanning different disciplines and formats in between theatre, performance, and visual arts, has established Mroué as a key figure in a new generation of artistic voices in Lebanon. Employing both fiction and in-depth analysis as tools for engaging with his immediate reality, Mroué explores the responsibilities of the artist in communicating with an audience in given political and cultural contexts. His works deal with issues that have been swept under the rug in the current political climate of Lebanon, connected to the enduring marks left by the Lebanese Civil War as well as more recent political events.
