Event Details

Israeli choreographer Hillel Kogan’s award-winning duet We Love Arabs dives headlong into the toughest of questions – how can we co-exist within conflict?

Somewhere in Tel Aviv, a Jewish choreographer enlists an Arab dancer to help create a work that will overcome fears and carry a message of peace: but as the work progresses, power struggles ensue.

Skewering choreographic fads, unconscious bias, and misplaced good intentions, the piece unfolds as a corrosively funny takedown of politics, ethnic stereotypes, and contemporary dance itself.

Performed by Kogan and Mourad Bouayad, We Love Arabs blends biting political and social commentary with a highly physical movement language and has been a hit on stages all over the world.
