The project explores the meaning of disability and physical limitations in modern day Jerusalem. Two participants with disabilities, who come from two different sectors of the population, move toward one another, towards an encounter. The project examines the potential parallels between paralysis and the sacred, between body and city, and between personal and social rehabilitation. All three monotheistic religions relate to disability and limitations, each in its own way. But does this have any significance in the Jerusalem of today? Is disability a common denominator that can allow for a different kind of creative discourse between the sectors?
The project was developed during the Musrara Residency Program
