“Free Advice” Solo Performance – Farah Saleh

FREE ADVICE performance – an interactive dance piece on artists role in society and politics. Free and Open to the Public.

The piece is a continuation of Farah Saleh’s research on art production as a form of daily protest in Palestine. She says, “during its creation I looked for interaction with ordinary people, to investigate my relationship – as an artist – with the society I live in. I went to the streets of Ramallah, Vienna and Budapest with a ‘Free Advice’ sign to open a dialogue and exchange advice with passersby. These dialogues made me understand that the people concerns were collective, but seemed to them quite individual. Saleh brings these collective concerns to the studio and transforms them into an interactive dance performance, to continue the dialogue started on the streets, in the performative space.
