Enter the world of Gardens Speak: a stunning, full-body interactive experience that sold-out at The Public’s Under The Radar Festival in New York. Only 10 people admitted per hour.
Across Syria, many gardens conceal the dead bodies of activists and protesters who took to the streets during the early periods of the uprising against the Ba’athist government in 2011. These domestic burials play out a continuing collaboration between the living and the dead — each providing safety, truth and a voice for each other. In Gardens Speak, Lebanese artist Tania El Khoury carefully reconstructs the oral histories of ten ordinary people and transforms Syrian statistics into universal, human stories.
"A stunning and utterly moving experience that fully exploits the power of theater."
- P. Carl, ArtsEmerson
