Manhandled Part two: Salome
Performance interpretation to the New Testament story and Oscar Wild’s 1891 tragedy play Salome.
The term Barbarism is a founding concept of European identity. The concept generates a dynamic of forcing the alien others to convert to ones own beliefs, if they fail to do so, they may be considered as subhuman beings whose annihilation seems legitimate.
This performance was made in collaboration with: Haian Arshied, Tarek Al Muazen and Manar Al Sammour. Together we collaps the boundaries between fragile and lasting, barbaric and civilized, and symbolic and prejudes.
Made during and with the support of Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten residency.
