A Journey to Jerusalem, also known as Trip to Jerusalem, is a dance production project inspired by the famous children’s game of “Musical Chairs”. The game stands for a metaphor for conflict over space and the right to own and remain in it. The aim is to communicate the impact of the Palestinian conflict on the individual through movements. It touches on the impact of conflict and on how people move by looking at the similarities and differences in Palestinian folk dance in different areas experiencing various forms of warfare and struggle.
