This is a free outdoor event
Fences and barbed wire, rusty metal sheets on roofs of dwellings, hanging flags, solid footsteps striking the ground with elegance, chins up and colourful clothes, carefully put together… This is the image of the Balata camp in the West Bank. That unreal, absurd, and magical place is the inspiration for our new artistic creation.
An immersive setting questions the standards, the stage itself and the audience. The impulse of the traditional dances, in its concentric shape, embodies the scenography. The energy circulates between the fringes and the centre of the stage. Inhabited by this collective force, the movement becomes a projectile to expose torture and injustice. A hanging image inspired by a so violent desire that exceeds reality… A mirage.
