I am fine. My family is fine. The world is fine.
We live our lives in a reality that we have created based on fragments, on piecemeal memory and perception. Many parts of lived experience are missing in the narratives that people tell about themselves. Elements that we’d rather repress, ignore and deny. But what are the things we cannot see, do not want to see? How do we do that? Is repression humanity’s strongest psychological weapon for survival?
In their new project Yael Ronen and the ensemble examine the human capacity to look away. While researching for the piece they meet with a psychiatrist, a historian, a lawyer, an energy therapist, a hypnotist and of course themselves - their personal family histories and their own blind spots.
Premiere: 9. September 2016
