Palestinian playwright Dalia Taha: You want stories of suffering

24-02-2015

150224-dalia-taha-guardian.jpgHer dramas deal with violence and the impossibility of life under occupation, but Dalia Taha insists there’s more to her plays than Palestinian politics. “Ask me about the play,” she says, and then just launches into a description. “It’s about children and parents – and what would you do as a parent to protect your child when the violence is unimaginable? It’s about the tension that comes from desperately trying to hold on to normalcy and ordinariness, which creates a situation where children and parents are constantly switching roles, with children being the parents and parents being children. It’s about modes of existence generated by impossibilities: the impossibility of childhood, the impossibility of parenthood.”

Photo story: Healing in post-war Gaza

17-02-2015

150217-healing-in-post-war-gaza.jpgAmerican photographer Heidi Levine recorded how the injured men, women and children of Gaza pick up their lives after the bombings of summer 2014. How do they get married, go to school, make do with one or more fewer limbs and pick out shoes to go with their prostheses. A moving eyewitness account in images.

Happy New Year!
