LAAF: Gesturing Refugees

  • Sat, 06 Jul 2019
  • 2.00 PM - 3.15 PM

2pm – 3:15pm with post-performance Q&A

This interactive performance is intended to archive hidden stories of refugeehood using the bodies of refugee artists and audience members, while playing with other archive material, testimonies and imagination. The performance is created by Palestinian dancer and choreographer Farah Saleh and collaborators, and is followed by an audience Q&A.

The re-enactment, transformation and deformation of refugees’ alternative and personal memories aims to reclaim the narrative of refugeehood and challenge the identity of passive victimhood, to which refugees are often subjected.  

Funded by Creative Scotland and Cultural Resource and supported by Dance Base.

Suitable for ages 12+

Tickets: £5/£7
