Palestinian dancer and choreographer Farah explores what her body can and can’t remember of her life in Ramallah in 2002 when, living under curfew, she returned to dancing after years of interruption. Working with video artist Owa Barua, Saleh recalls the daily gestures of her life in a period when her domestic space was her only site of physical freedom.
This promenade performance is the latest story in ongoing project, the Archive of Gestures, through which Saleh archives hidden stories from the Palestinian narrative.
“a gently powerful multimedia experiment into body language, inhibitions, emotions, immaterial treasures but also, you can't help but feel, the things that can't be snatched away by the state.”
