B-Orders (Palestinian Circus Company in association with Aurora Nova)

By | Published on Wednesday 26 August 2015


In this powerful and moving peice Ashtar Muallem and Fadi Zmorrod use circus to demonstrate the cultural and political situation in Palestine, and the emotions generated by it. Though specific to Palestine, this piece has reliability that crosses International borders. Using a minimalist stage set, Fadi and Muallem cleverly form cultural structures with building blocks. They walk among the borders that were marked to them by history, and destroy them in frustration. This piece eloquently gives a voice to the feelings of the younger generations of Palestine, a voice that is not often heard in western media. Mark this as a must watch piece on your fringe list.

Underbelly’s Circus Hub on the Meadows, until 29 Aug.
