Abdulaal Hussein

Abdulaal Hussein is an actor. He was born in Sudan and has lived in the Netherlands since 2016. In 2017, after many wanderings through the Netherlands, he ended up in the asylum seekers center in the Utrecht neighborhood Overvecht. It was during WijkSafari AZC (UrbanSafari ASC), a theater project by Adelheid&ZINA in which experienced actors are brought together with residents of asylum seekers centers, that his talent for acting was discovered. Following this experience, the young, talented performer continued to develop his skills. He currently studies at the Creative College theater department and completed the learning trajectory of DOX, De Ateliers, in 2018. Previously, among other projects, he played the role of a mostly Arabic-speaking Scipio in Caligula, Theater Utrecht, 2019, and was part of Dodejaarsavond (Dead Years’ Eve), a program around commemoration and freedom by DOX, Theater Utrecht, and Stadsschouwburg Utrecht, 2019. Hussein lives and works in Utrecht.
