Be More Penguin.

Here’s what you need to know…

I am Hamzeh.
My favourite shisha flavour is double apple. I love dancing.

Here’s what’s going to happen…

There will be loud music.
A wedding. My first time on a plane. A lot of moonlight.

This is the story of my life (so far).
People have a lot of questions. The answer is:

I can do anything.”

Full of humour and beauty, Hamzeh Al Hussien’s extraordinary story takes you on a personal tour of the places he knows best: his village in the
Syrian mountains; Za’atari camp in Jordan, Gateshead and inside his mind. A place full of music, dancing, fantasies and marbles.

Hamzeh invites the audience to be his childhood friends, to hold up the moon to light his way, into his dreams, brushing the dust from his
clothes…and taking the stage.
