The First Moment of Marwa El Sherbini
Directed by Noa Gur

Performance Date: 29.06.2019
at
Das Bundeskanzleramt / site-specific (Berlin, Germany)

Almost 10 years ago, Marwa el Sherbini, a young woman of Egyptian origin, residing in Dresden, was brutally murdered inside the city's courtroom by the right-wing extremist against whom she testified. This incident raised fierce questions towards the state's authorities & their representatives (Judges, officials, and the police who shot Marwa's husband instead of her attacker). Nevertheless, responsibility has not been taken and her family's lawsuit against the german court was rejected three times so far. Through assembling legal records & further information the case is reenacted, the performers (trained as dancers) are talking and moving in reverse, while reversing the timeline from her death back to life & reality that preceded to a sequence of events, through using backward movement & speech.

Performance: 
Daniel Adams, Irina Demina, Zihern Lee, Xica Lisboa, Pauline Payen, Keisuke Sugawara, Sebastian Rein, and Alexey Trubarov

-A situation that tightly adheres to something. -A smooth movement of water. This choreography is inspired by the word Jozen Wa Mizu No Gotoshi of Laozi Tao Te Ching. in one could have and imagine a lithe mind like water, it can be that all one's relations will go well.

Dolls were also burned or spared by the bamboo as a spy of the enemy country. there were blue eyes dolls that were thought to be burned or broken, but although there were people secretly hidden in the back of the school's shelf or in the warehouse as a doll had no guilt.
