Amos Gitaï

House tells the story of a West Jerusalem House during a quarter of a century through the stories of its successive inhabitants, Arabs and Jews, Palestinians and Israelis.
From his documentary trilogy – The House (1980), A house in Jerusalem (1997), News from Home News from House (2005) – Amos Gitaï is back to theatre by summoning these human destinies in a theatre creation that goes up the course time.
On the stage theatre, the history of this House becomes a metaphor and an artistic dialogue between actors and musicians from all over the Middle East, with different languages, origins and musical traditions, willing to try to express together the memory of the past and the possibility of reconciliation.

Dialogue between Amos Gitai and Wajdi Mouawad
in partnership with mk2 Institut

Tuesday 21 March at 8pm at mk2 Gambetta

Israeli director Amos Gitai and Lebanese-Quebec writer and director Wajdi Mouawad discuss the need to question, through art, the violence of the world that unfolds. Hate, humiliation and the place of the artist are at the heart of their discussion. How to be critical of one's own side? What action to take? How to disobey? How to wake up? How to reverse the perspective?
