B-Orders - 2014



A production of the Palestinian Circus School. A creation by Ashtar Muallem and Fadi Zmorrod


About the show:

In the wombs of our mothers we are all made up from the same elements, blood flesh and air. Arriving into our families and into our societies we start developing our character and becoming who we are. As we grow we lose our innocence and our fun to play, we become dominant and dominated. We start walking on lines drawn for us without understanding why or even questioning. If those lines no longer exist, we unconsciously return to walk on them. We are put in moulds fabricated through the accumulation of history according to our gender, religion, and nationality…

Repetition and pressure lead us to go against the “normal”, we leave our home aiming to start something new. But do we ever get rid of our memories, education and preconceived ideas?
