Thierry Huard’s WE CAN DISAPPEAR YOU is a performance in the round for five performers. Inspired by the pictorial oeuvre of Jewish-American artist Leon Golub, this piece works to dissect our humanity to shed light into its darkest recesses. In an amalgam of army clothing, images of current events, bondage techniques and masks, this choreography addresses power dynamics between individuals and groups of individuals. Onstage: Angie Cheng, Karina Iraola, Silvia Sanchez, Andrew Turner, Simon Vermeulen. Collaborators: Paul Chambers, Corinne Crane, Lucas Paris. | In 2013, Arkadi Zaides (of Institut des Croisements) gained access to the video archives of B’Tselem - The Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories, which contain thousands of hours of footage documented by Palestinians. This installation, Capture Practice, is comprised of two synchronized channels that work to examine the somatic influence of the occupation on the bodies of those administering it as Arkadi reenacts the violent gestures captured on tape. Collaborators: Katerina Bakatsaki, Amir Bornstein, Effi & Amir. Volunteers: Issa Amro, Abu Ayesha, Mustafa Elkam, Raed Abu Ermeileh, Abd al-Karim J’abri, Ahmad Jundiyeh, Iman Sufan, Mu’ataz Sufan, Oren Yakobovich.
