Dancing on the Edge Urgent artistic dialogues with the middle east



Come as You Are

Mohammed Fouad, Nir de Volff, Haytham Safia / Dancing on the Edge, Grand Theatre Groningen

The borderline between absurd and normal behavior expressed in images and physical codes and the simple need of two men from the Middle East to relax and withdraw from the politics of the region are the focus of this piece.
The meeting point of the two men is in the Sinai, a beautiful and serene place, but their mental meeting point is a zone of unrest. Between these two, however, there arises a micro and macro communication, shot through with a good portion of black humor.
As an American commercial of Coca Cola  stated:  “For each weapon sold worldwide…20,000 people share a Coca-Cola”
Is this a joke?,  is it pathetic? or is it actually a bit true?

Come as You Are invites you to see what a fresh Coca-Cola on the beach can do for the Middle-Eastern man who drinks it.
