A Soldier’s Dream

Solo Performance | Dance, Video | 20 min

A Soldier’s Dream is a video installation and live performance created especially for the Stockholm Fringe Festival by the Israeli-French artist Tamara Erde.

 

The work is influenced by poems of the Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish, and aims to give a visual personal adaptation to his writing.

The space is constructed from rows of miniature white beds, between which the performer is dancing in times, a projection of a video piece with the sound of Darwish reading and an especially composed soundtrack by Yann Leguay, and on a closed-by corner a table covered with filled glasses, from which the performer is sipping and spitting in endless sickles, on the video and in-live.
