The viewpoint of a Palestinian. What kind of body is the product of a society full of violence in everyday life? To address this issue, the Israeli choreographer Arkadi Zaides borrows the Palestinian gaze over the settlers in the occupied territories and turns his body into an archive. The choreography is based on images shot by Palestinian volunteers of the Camera Project of B’Tselem (the Israeli Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories), which documented their lives in the conflict areas.
