With my hand on my heart is a dance performance in the dark.
Darkness is a picture of our time as we try to navigate a boundless space. Where past markings no longer apply. Where countries disappear, national boundaries are both broken down and strengthened, economic and social structures are shifted, values are shifting and people are moving. Even the Earth has begun to move. Like a wild animal kept in chains.
But darkness is also charitable. It gives the body tranquility and new eyes. Sound, images and words blur and erase to re-emerge in new contexts. Well-known concepts are transformed. Prejudice disappears in the dark and we can sense a new presence. In order to find new answers, we must look in there where no answers are known in advance.
WITH MY HAND ON MY HEART is an expression of honesty, an Arabic greeting and a pose that one can take while singing patriotic song
