Why can’t we stop the nightmare in the Middle-East ? - by Theatre of Wrong Decisions (Netherlands)

Video (1.00 min)

Theatre of Wrong Decisions (ToWD) is a small collective of artists in the Netherlands.

Theatre of Wrong Decisions can be briefly described as a fusion of visual arts and theatre. It manifests itself in short video productions critically responding to highly controversial and sensitive issues in today’s world. The video clips are closely linked to similar situations in Shakespeare’s plays. By using Shakespearean quotes the participants of ToWD are putting current issues of moral concern into a universal perspective.

ToWD : "Over 50 years ago – on the 5th of June, 1967 - a war broke out between Israel and Egypt, Syria and Jordan. Israel conquered and took control over the West Bank and the Gaza Strip as well as the Sinai Peninsula and the Golan Heights. Since then Palestinians have lived under occupation, in violation of all UN resolutions and of international law. In recent peaceful demonstrations (started on 30 March 2018) by civilians in Gaza, 119 Palestinian people were killed, while thousands were wounded. The Israeli snipers used explosive, high velocity bullets. This type of ammunition is explicitly forbidden by The Hague Conventions. Hundreds of people will be mutilated for life."
