My Jerusalem by Avital Raz

March 11 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

£8 – £10

A solo performance derived from a song. A politically-charged tale of a drunken one-night stand, infused with stories of growing up in the turmoil of 1980s Israel. A nuanced exploration of the politics of division, from internal checkpoints and separation walls to gender norms. Can we go beyond the blame game and really see each other’s all too vulnerable humanity?


Doors will open at 7pm and there will be a dance installation by artists Dani Abulhawa and Sarah Spies to enjoy as you enter the space. The piece is called Bring Yourself to the Table and raises the questions of who is heard? Who can Contribute?  Who is Present? Who is not? The piece derives from time spent in Cape Town exploring the political impulses of artists there.

My Jerusalem will then be performed at 7.45pm and  is followed by a panel discussion with artists Dani Abulhawa and Sarah Spies discussing connections with their work.

PLEASE NOTE: Contains adult themes, the content of which may cause distress. In particular, issues of political turmoil and child abuse. This performance is not suitable for under 16s.

Tickets are £10 (£8 concessions) plus booking fee. Click here to book tickets.
