A new contemporary dance performance by UK-based Palestinian choreographer Farah Saleh, investigating the collective mental health of UK residents after the EU Referendum. Commissioned by PS/Y for Hysteria 2018.

About

Beginning with Theresa May’s famously repeated phrase, “Brexit means Brexit!”, the performance considers factors that led to the vote, but more importantly the impact of the current political situation: the uncertainty, frustration and polarisation of society.

Developed in collaboration with Victoria Tischler, Professor of Arts and Health, Head of the Dementia Care Centre, University of West London, Brexit means Brexit! explores how the political divide manifests on a physical, emotional and social level. How does Brexit affect the UK’s European residents, for both those who voted to leave and those who voted to remain?


Choreography: Farah Saleh
Research: Farah Saleh and Victoria Tischler
Dancers: Robert Hesp and Tanja Erhart
Costume design: Jill Skulina
Produced by PS/Y, with initial research period supported by Candoco Dance Company. 

Commissioned by PS/Y for Hysteria.
