In a Thousand Silences

Soft Ground, 37 The Moor, Sheffield S1 4PF

A virtual reality experience celebrating Palestinian culture, whilst highlighting the brutal censorship which artists face. The Freedom Theatre and Artists on the Frontline present Palestine’s first-ever virtual reality film, In A Thousand Silences. It combines dance, music, poetry and storytelling, and performances from renowned artists including actor Mohammad Bakri, musician Suhail Khoury and poet Dareen Tatour. Using the latest digital technology to defy borders, walls and checkpoints, global audiences are immersed in cultural spaces Рfrom the desert to the mountains, Jenin Refugee Camp, and theatres both ancient and new.

Despite relentless attacks on Palestinian cultural identity, urgent stories take you to the heart of how artists continue to resist.
