"Quiet" arose from a real sense of emergency; in light of the growing violence and mistrust between communities in Israel, constantly subjected to states of shock which never allow the space needed for reflection, and thus never allow for change. In such an environment it felt acute to create a platform which allows for an open and honest communication; a place where it is safe to let one's demons out and set them free; where the irrationality of response is examined and emotions are bravely explored; where a broad perspective is sought and where trust is continuously built.
Jewish and Arab, actors and dancers, the creative process was nourished and inspired by all these differences between the participant’s social realities and artistic backgrounds. The four characters in the piece reveal a landscape which contains aggression, compassion, confusion and yearning. in the midst of this intensity, lies a constant search for a place which is able to contain all conflicted layers - a place which is quiet.
