Past event

As part of System_D film festival, the performance As Salem Aleykoum can be seen to open the festival.  


Carried by 2 cultures, my ass on a border, I belong to the in-between identity that has no homeland. So today I stand up to talk to you. And I'm not doing it alone. At the heart of the show is the border. The border that our parents had to cross even before we were born.

We, heirs to this "coupling identity" - believe it is our duty not to shy away from dialogue but to actually provoke it. So, using the boundary that separates the audience from the performers, we want to approach everything uncompromisingly. Together, we are going to try to create a welcoming ritual that can heal our history. We enter this space separated and fragmented; we will try to leave it together, united. The border becoming the catalyst for a common spirit is the challenge of these times we are all living through. There is no chance of failure with an As Salem Aleykoum (السالم عليكم) - peace be upon you - by way of welcome.
