Info

In May/June 2014 Farah Saleh is the choreographer in residence at the Tanzquartier Wien. In a multi-part evening, the internationally active Syrian-born, Ramallah-based choreographer and dancer will provide insights into her research and production processes.

"Sending flowers to the beloved one seems to be the easiest thing in the world, just as going out for dinner or walking hand in hand. But sometimes things happen differently. In Palestine, experiencing love is not always easy. And it’s even more complicated if a Palestinian from Gaza falls in love with someone who is not from the strip. But from Ramallah for example, sister city (yet) not twin. (…)"

(Programme note on Parole, parole, parole... )


In her lecture following the performance Parole, parole, parole... Farah Saleh explains the context of contemporary dance in Palestine and the possibilities that artistic production holds as a form of everyday resistance. At the centre of her work is the question of the extent to which artists should reflect people’s opinions and adapt themselves to society, or rather raise their voices and drive and inspire change.
