Reviewing Antigone's Heart

October 31, 2008

Written By: Farah Mehdawi Sometimes, a transparency seen in an actor's solo performance will not be as amazing (in terms of following a script) as much as the little details and reflections of the performance as a whole. It was in reality that Antigone's spoke and let the soul swoon for the melodies of its beats. On October 23, as a part of the cultural activities sponsored by the Spanish Embassy and the Spanish Cultural Center (Cervantes) in Amman, the Royal Cultural Center hosted the Spanish play Antigone's Heart. Antigone's Heart is a play, depicted from the Greek Tragedy of Sophocles Antigone the daughter of Oedipus, who defies the rules of men seeking glory by destruction, to raise the name of God having faith in family and peace.

Sandal Survival in Wadi Ibn-Hammad

October 31, 2008

Written By: Tala Bassam Momani I've always been passionate about showing people around Jordan's nature spots and leading them to countless little-unknown gorges and valleys. Wadi Ibn Hammad is one of my favourite destinations and it was there that I discovered how important it is to be dressed appropriately!

Cardboard for Sale

Written and Photos By: Saleem Ayoub Quna This is a picture of a cheap push-cart standing in the middle of the square in front of Al-Husseini Grand Mosque. The time is noon of the last Friday of Ramadan, the month of Fasting and piety which has left us few days ago. When I approached the two boys who attended this push-cart to take a photo, a third boy much younger suddenly appeared on the scene and forbade the other two boys from being photographed standing next to it! I could only guess why he did that. But can you guess what this push-cart, stacked with these flat brown pieces of cardboard was doing there? If you could not guess, then have a good look at the following two pictures and make a second guess! This is what I...
