Merlijn and his fellow artists organize almost 150 performances in small and private spaces, to bring the focus on personal, intimate stories. In this way they avoid politics or nationalism, but emphasize the human size and the direct contact between people with diverse cultural backgrounds.

The artists base their work on stories by the local inhabitants and the history of the places where the performances take place. The goal is to make the voices of the ordinary inhabitants of Jerusalem heard that are usually shouted down by politicians, journalists, ideologists and fanatics.
