Other Places

Bashar Murkus + Khashabi Theatre + The Palestinian National Theatre El Hakawati

Diaspora. How did diaspora become an identity?

In Other Places, Bashar Murkus and an ensemble of theatre artists transform the stage into a laboratory in order to dissect the anatomy of identity. They manipulate the separate components, observe them from afar, scrutinize them from different perspectives, in order to deconstruct them and reconstruct them anew in front of the audience. The show offers a rich performance experience that considers memory as tangible material, the human being as an object in a museum, and place as an elusive concept.

The work began as a performance research project under the title “Identity in a Lab.” The participants are twenty Palestinian theatre artists living in different parts of the world.

About the festival

Connexion vzw (Brussels) and A.M.Qattan Foundation are proposing a focus on flemish-palestinian co-operation in arts and culture, inspired by the Government of Flanders and the Mission of Palestine in Europe, Belgium and Luxembourg who decided on a Flemish-Palestinian cultural project. Unlike the logic of events like Europalia, or even the Venice biennale which are a projection of the imagination of a country, Under Construction is based on reciprocity and aims to promote cultural cooperation, dialogue and exchange.

Instead of focusing on difference and alterity, the two organising partners focus on co-operation and solidarity, and give more visibility and value to forms of 'togetherness' that are already existing between Flanders and Palestine.
