Join some of the creative team from Floating on a Dead Sea for a panel discussion led by dramaturg Hanna Slattne as they share insights into the process of creating this new work.

Catherine Young (choreographer), Luca Truffarelli (filmmaker), Salma Ataya (dancer/ Sareyyet Ramallah Dance Company) and Vanessa Guevarra (dancer) share their experience of being in Palestine, how this has shaped the work and with current restrictions, how the work will evolve from here. They are also joined by Palestinian choreographer Amir Sabra from Stereo 48 Dance Company who shares his own insights in creating work in Palestine under occupation.

The discussion features film footage of Palestine by Luca Truffarelli.
