Soul Seekers is a performance integrating video and technology that aims to reconcile the desires of past, preset, and future in humanity. The integrated video was created from a six-week stay at an asylum (where he was previously a resident) in which time Mokhallad interviewed and created the film with fellow refugees. Asylum in this sense is referring to the holding place of those seeking asylum from war-torn countries.

A Note from the Playwright:
This piece is for the universal black girl who society has taught to un-love aspects of herself— to un-love, question, or curse the various ways her black beauty is expressed —and who has not yet been given space nor time to deal with the layers of that trauma.
A Poetry Physical-theatre and dance performance chronicling man’s different belief about Negativity and positivity of Life, through his perception. The race of life and man’s destiny, contrasting between good and evil, poor or rich, existence and essence and all that occurs till the end of mankind.
