We Love Arabs dives headlong into the toughest of questions surrounding how we can co-exist within conflict. Somewhere in Tel Aviv, a Jewish choreographer enlists an Arab dancer to help create a work that will overcome fears and carry a message of peace. But as the work progresses, power struggles ensue; bodies resist control. Skewering choreographic fads as well as unconscious bias and misplaced good intentions, the piece unfolds as a corrosively funny takedown of politics, ethnic stereotypes and contemporary dance itself. Hillel Kogan is one of Israel’s most successful independent choreographers, blending biting political and social commentary with a highly physical movement language, and this award-winning work has been a hit on stages all over the world.

Post-show talkbacks April 24 (French) and April 25 (English). Presented as part of The Dance Centre’s Global Dance Connections series.
