Imperceptible Clouds

Imperceptible Clouds audibly depicts the presence of multiple bodies and patterns interaction and/or interference.
The free-improvisational performance carries multiple references points from each performer's heritage, thoughts feelings, influencing the possibilities that persist or introduced to the arrangement.

The unrehearsed creations stretch and fold on a sense of direction, with an aliveness and shifting fabric that asks the question "where are they gathering?" as amorphous relations are constructed.

'The Place that is Ours'

A film by Zena Agha and Dorothy Allen Pickard

A daughter of Palestine searches for traces of an obliterated past

In this hybrid observational documentary, a daughter returns to her father's village in Palestine, which was destroyed in 1948. She journeys through unfamiliar landscapes and is confronted with the reality of her own exile.

The Place that is Ours follows up on an ongoing research project by Palestinian-Iraqi writer, poet, and analyst Zena Agha. With filmmaker Dorothy Allen-Pickard, Agha distills the plight of Palestine into a series of maps that, when compared over the decades, reveal forgotten pasts and colonial ideations of the future.

“Making The Place that is Ours was like learning history backwards,” said Agha. “It was about understanding what it means to be Palestinian outside of Palestine and the experience of returning to my homeland to make sense of what it means to be part of the diaspora.” via @Nowness
