Residency Co Kontamine - The Blonde and the Arab

25 March > 5 April 2019

When two completely opposite people meet and fall in love with each other, we cannot prevent desire from existing and bonding them together.?
Emmanuelle Jay and Mohammed Kouadri-Sameut, the choreographers, were inspired by Yolande Zauberman’s documentary film Would you have sex with an Arab?,
which shows the nightlife of Tel Aviv’s young people in Jerusalem: Jews and Arabs, all citizens of one same country: Israel. No wall separates them. ?
La Blonde et L’Arabe / The Blonde and the Arab is in line with the work of the Kontamine company.
