Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme work together across a range of sound, image, text, installation and performance practices. Their practice is engaged in the intersections between performativity, virtuality, political imaginaries and the body. The work created for “Bodies, un-protected” is part of their examination of the place and the significance of voice (in the form of song and oral poetry) and body (in the form of dance and gesture) as a political act of embodiment in a moment marked by various forms of violence against entire living fabrics. The project repositions these moments as a material witness to the destruction of everyday life that is occurring or has occurred: moments that represent critical ways in which these fractured communities are resisting their own erasure and laying claim to space, self and community.
