"The Children of Cefchaouen":
Portraits of children from Morocco.
It´s about the believes that we are not even consciously aware of holding are responsible for creating many of the illusions that we experience as reality. The power lies in: "remembering who you are and what is real, what is true is always present".
The Piece (Photographs, mixed media, video and sound installation) will give people an opportunity to step away from the cynicism which comes from too much familiarity, and be transported into a space at once familiar and strange.
In this way, we aim to put the audience in touch with innocence, themselves. To evoke unedited responses and leave judgment behind, and ultimately to feel compassion for the piece and for themselves.
