‘Enkidu Khaled powerfully transcends the dilemma and the self-involvement typical of most one-man-shows.’ – Al Arte Magazine (Belgium)

Can art really save the world? Enkidu Khaled fled Baghdad in 2007. His award-winning show is a unique form of creative exchange. Based on traumatic events he witnessed years back, he invites the audience to join him in analysing and simplifying the complex process of making theatre from personal experience. In four easy steps he creates a new performance every night, showing how memory, association and tiny fragment of ideas can become a story and how simple decisions can have devastating effect. The name Enkidu means ‘reason’: his method is trying to make sense.

Part lecture, part performance, part workshop, Working Method moves seamlessly from the lightest conversation to emotional punch. Engaging honest, it questions how life and theatre interact.

Enkidu Khaled studied theatre in Baghdad, before settling and working in Belgium.
