What My Body Can/t Remember is the latest story in Palestinian dancer and choreographer Farah Saleh’s ‘Palestinian Archive of Gestures’ – an ongoing project through which Saleh archives hidden stories from the Palestinian narrative.

In this new Fruitmarket commission, Saleh attempts to archive her personal story by exploring what her body can and can’t remember of her life in Ramallah in 2002 when, living under curfew, Saleh returned to dancing after years of interruption. Working with filmmaker Owa Barua, Saleh recalls the daily gestures of her life exploring her memory of a period when her domestic space was her only site of physical freedom.

Performance: 6.30–7.15pm. Bar open: 6–8pm. Alongside the performance, Saleh will show a selection of videos from her Palestinian Archive of Gestures and her wider practice from 12 noon.

In partnership with Dance Base.
