Other Places - Bashar Murkus / Khashabi Theatre

A new kind of Palestinian identity
What does Palestine mean to Palestinians who no longer live there, to the extensive Palestinian diaspora of refugees and self-imposed exiles? This the question Bashar Murkus addresses in Other Places. After stopovers in Brussels and Berlin – because exiles simply cannot or do not return – a six-member company found a form in which it could connect all these stories. The resulting mosaic articulates a new kind of Palestinian identity: one that is not bound to a territory.
• Bashar Murkus is a young Palestinian director from Haifa, a city in Israel. In 2011, he founded the Khashabi Ensemble there, to showcase the city’s rich artistic energy. Last year, Bashar Murkus presented New Middle East at Kaaitheater.
