Using movement, dance, storytelling, ritual, live testimony, video and original music, this production plays on two main lines of action: The first, portrays the hardships of a family’s journey seeking refuge after escaping a war torn country. Through five episodes titled “Family Scenes 1 to 5,” we follow the family members as they leave home, cross the border, take a long and dangerous journey, and end up in a new and foreign land. The second is a series of abstracted scenes that comment on contemporary political issues like consuming media, parading war, exhibiting death and torture, and selling nations for corporate interests.
This production is a multidisciplinary movement-based performance that is concerned with questions of spectatorship, witnessing, representation and responsibility.
