Above zero

Ossama Halal  |  Performing Arts  |  2014  |  Syria
On war, fear, emigration, and longing, “Above Zero” is a dance performance bringing together 8 dancers and 4 musicians, telling a Syrian tale, set to the rhythm of shelling and gunfire, within a space as large as a tent in a refugee camp. The performers are seeking answers to the questions of human life in times of war. They start with the works of the German Bertolt Brecht, and those poetic approaches to the German experience, to go beyond the Syrian local story and into the depth of humanity.
