Rita\The Long Rain

“ Don´t read the paper, the drums are still the same drums. And war is not my profession. I am still me. Are you still you?“

This performance is a journey that brings two lovers together in a room, stripped of their nationality, labels and conflict, creating a fantasy that might not be achievable in reality. This is a journey of love, abandonment and disturbance, and for the most part a journey of contradictory dualities, constantly shattering each other due to the predicaments which stands between them, and between their lasting existence in the room. 

Rita, The Long Rain, is a dance performance based on the poem (Rita, The Long Rain), by the Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish.
