As Far As Isolation Goes
Date 22 May 2019
Location Main Floor
A performance by musician and street artist, Basel Zaraa, and live artist, Tania El Khoury, about the health experiences of refugees.
This builds upon a previous collaboration As Far As My Fingertips Take Me, in which El Khoury commissioned Zaraa to record a rap song inspired by the journey his sisters made from Damascus to Sweden. In the newly commissioned As Far As Isolation Goes, Zaraa creates a song inspired by conversations with friends and colleagues who have recently claimed refuge in the UK. It uses touch, sound and interactivity to bring the audience in contact with those faced with inhumane detention centres and a mental health system that disregards people’s political and emotional needs.
