Jerusalem is usually dominated by expectations that are larger than life, magnificent dreams and superhuman powers. By stressing the personal, the delicate and the ‘small’, the inhabitants and the artists get an opportunity to recreate their personal relation to their city. Feelings of vulnerability and oppression can make place for self conciousness, dignity and hope.

Al Quds Underground creates an intimate setting where personal confessions and little everyday things of life can be told. Not conflict and segregation, but contact and curiosity is our message. Visitors make real contact with the place and the character of the performance. For them, each performance is a little piece of the puzzle that is Jerusalem; small but very intense and clear.
