Suicide Note from Palestine (2014)

One day before her final exams, Amal has a concerning nightmare: she is Palestine and she has decided to die. Amal’s nightmare drafts between confusion, torture and despair – notions set as strange characters that symbolise some of the key players in world politics that shape the history, land, politics and occupation of her country.

This play, originally produced in 2013 and performed to wide acclaim in Jenin Refugee Camp, uses social satire to present a rare window into the younger generation of Palestine; a generation just as hopeless about their present as they are about the future.

During her dream, Amal is invited to take part in a UN general meeting representing Palestine. In her speech, the girl embodying her own country announces her decision to die as a political act.

The play is a damning indictment of the complicity of the European, American and Arab political elites in the Israeli occupation and repression of Palestine. Sarah Irving, Electronic Intifada

The actors lead the spectators into a visual tour where lights and shadows create a disturbing atmosphere as Amal, Palestine, is forced to interact with all the external stakeholders that play a fundamental role in the current situation. The violent Israeli army, Israel as an occupying power, an agreeable Europe, a paternalistic United States and the hypocritical and self-absorbed Arab world, along with a United Nations medical team in charge of drugging Palestine during her uprisings. A video camera takes the role of an actor as it documents and gives testimony – mirroring the reality of the international community – of Palestine´s fate.

Suicide Note from Palestine is supported by Sida, as part of the PAN program, and by the European Union.
