Palmyra

Edinburgh Fringe Summerhall selection

Palmyra is an exploration of revenge, the politics of destruction and what we consider to be barbaric, inviting people to step back from the news and look at what lies beneath, and beyond, civilization. Palmyra was one of the best preserved in the world. A year later, after ISIS had been removed from the city, a concert entitled, “With a Prayer from Palmyra: Music Revives the Ancient Walls”, was staged on the site. In his opening statement, Valery Gergiev said: Our concert in Palmyra is our appeal for everyone to come to peace and unity, to unite and work against this evil, against terrorism. This is where the piece started.

Stressful... But sublime as well.
