JE SUIS VENUE  أتيت


“One shot, it would be war,
one gaze, you would make me born”

Side by side symmetrically on stage, a woman, a man, two desks, against a background of geopolitical conference.
She -barely a messenger or a legal representative? - speaks in Arabic, outlines a peace plan, in between utopia and cold realism.
He translates, methodically.
But words are not enough. We must have symbols. An anthem. A flag. A posture. Duly noted.
But symbols are not enough. We must throw our body into battle.
Can we translate a body? Can we dance a peace plan?
