Forbidden Dance

2015, Germany was hit with a refugee crisis. An Israeli choreographer meets three Syrian dancers in Berlin. Together they dare to collaborate on two dance pieces. In the past, however, their collaboration remained invisible to the public. 2025 is their 10th anniversary, so the four agree to now make their collaboration visible by bringing Israeli and Syrian bodies and their stories together on stage for their new show. Forbidden Dance follows this process from creation to premiere. We observe them dealing with personal struggles while facing the ongoing Middle East conflict. But they never give up on their utopia. At least in Berlin it can be a reality.
