LAAF: Gesturing Refugees

Venue Bluecoat
Admission £5 - £7
Start Time 14:00
End Time 15:15

This interactive dance performance is intended to archive hidden stories of refugeehood using the bodies of refugee artists and audience members, while playing with other archive material, testimonies and imagination.

The performance is created by Palestinian dancer and choreographer Farah Saleh and collaborators, and is followed by an audience Q&A. The event is part of Liverpool Arab Arts Festival (LAAF).

The re-enactment, transformation and deformation of refugees’ alternative and personal memories aims to reclaim the narrative of refugeehood and challenge the identity of passive victimhood, to which refugees are often subjected.
