In his solo creation, Omar Rajeh collaborates with sound composer Pablo Palacio and questions the presence and materialization of his own body. It is a journey in movement and construction, a spontaneous play of and by the body. Without associations to identity, culture, religion, politics and other labels, would this body be able to stand on its own? And if so, what does it mean?

My body is onstage. It is not seeking representation. It does not carry within it any associations; it is simply being what it is. My body is misread, misinterpreted, victimized, violated, annihilated. It is not seen in its immediacy; rather it is always associated with a pre-conceived idea, word, image, action.
