Two people not from here
Building a life
Full of hope
Jerusalem is their playground
A place that symbolises a beginning
The epicentre of three world religions
Where an interminable struggle about ideologies and possession is played out
It’s good that you are here
It’s good that we are here
It’s good that you left your country
It’s good that this is your country now
You can call this your country
It’s good that you fell in love
It’s good that you got married
Is it good that we are married?
It’s good that you have children
You have two I have two
It’s good that you have hope
“You can learn something from every person you meet. Every person knows something that you don’t know.”Atta Nasser and Scarlet Tummers try to comprehend each other from this point of view. In their opinion, what is the difference between good and evil? What urges people to believe?
Jerusalem is the cradle of religion, of an ongoing conflict. However, it’s also a place where people live and laugh. This performance therefore wants to symbolise Jerusalem in all its different aspects.
Jerusalem was created within the framework of de medeSTANders, an initiative in which young makers develop a performance under the wings of STAN. Both Scarlet Tummers and Atta Nasser are already connected to the company: Atta was part of Move (on) and Orphans, Scarlet of Somnia and De Kersentuin. In 2020, she created A Separation, a STAN performance based on the eponymous Iranian film by Asghar Farhadi.
