The production Last Things Remaining has been successfully produced during a 5 week Co-Production with Ramallah Contemporary Dance Festival. After a showing in the studios of Sareyyet Ramallah the production did perform in Bethlehem, the 3. of October 2023 at BIPAF Festival. After from the 18. - 25. of November 2023 the creation toured in Switzerland and was performed at Tojo Theatre in Bern and Helferei in Zürich. All the 5 venues were sold out. We hope that there will be a just peace soon for Palestine.
