“Go see it! You will be amazed and enthralled!”


FRAY Studio partnered with Scene Productions and Ammonite Studio to produce the musical exploration of the late Abdulhussain Abdulredha's life; A beloved cultural icon in the whole gulf region the show celebrates his often political on-screen and theatre work.

The performance takes place between 1 May and 11 May at the National Theatre of Kuwait at the Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmed Cultural Centre.

FRAY produced video content for rear projection, gauzes and LED screens. The content was designed creatively to keep a united visual language throughout the show despite the many video surfaces and locations throughout the performance.

The content communicated scenery and world building using layered visual features from the world of Abdulhussain. Much of the inspiration has been from the huge wealth of archival footage and images generously shared by Abdulhussain's family.
