If you don’t know where you come from, how do you know where to go? Our home plays an important part in our biographies. But when was the last time you engaged in a quiet dialogue with your home? In an invigorating experimental performance, Israeli artist Nofar Sela takes the audience on a quest to re-appropriate her country. She posits her body to symbolise Israel and invites her spectators to refill this map with their bodies and hearts. In an atmosphere of intimacy and in dialogue with the audience, she begins to draw a new map with coal onto an oversized sheet of paper: Do you love me? Would you still love me if I did something forbidden? Group therapy with the relationship status “It’s complicated”.
