February 2016, as part of the first ZUHÖREN project, Sasha Waltz & Guests started in its studio a weekly dance workshop with unaccompanied Syrian minors, Syrian dancers and dancers of the company. Based on the idea and initiative of one of the participants, Medhat Aldaabal, four dancers of this group have been developing with Davide Camplani (Sasha Waltz & Guests dancer) a piece entitled Amal (Arabic: hope). Accompanied by live percussion, the artists share on stage images between their past and future and an expression of their hopes.
seconds pass, making you lose your job
seconds pass, making you lose the people you like
seconds pass, and you see your friends, dead
seconds pass, all the colours shift to black, all kinds of food lose their flavours
seconds pass making you think that there is no humanity, no fairness.
seconds pass, while you wish you could die and your pain ends.
and after every bad thing we went through,
we feel hope towards life again¡
this hope becomes bigger, then we find ourselves walking....
to escape from our memories and arrive somewhere else to build up our dreams,
the dreams, a lot of people have dreamed of,
but of which they were deprived…
we are here now… we are humans
we have the right to live... to dream!
JUNI 21 | OPEN DISCUSSION WITH THE ARTISTS
In cooperation with Theaterscoutings Berlin.
