DAH Theatre (Belgrado, Serbia) comes to the ExploreZ Festival with the performance Terra, which links gardening and plant cultivation to stories of immigrants about the pain and adaptability of the migration process. Through movement, songs, contact with the plants, earth and water, actress and musician Ljubica Damčević raises empathy for people who are ‘transplanted’. The performance contains videos in which documentary material is intertwined, just like the fate of emigrants.
This performance is part of a ‘Double Bill’ by DAH Theatre; we will show the Lecture-Performance ’25 Glasses of Wine’ prior to the performance ‘Terra’. The afternoon is concluded with a jam session under the direction of Odai Alhayek. The performances take place during Explorez Festival 2022 on Sunday 8 May at ZID Theater (Amsterdam).
