|The Dead Sea /Persyn&Nasser 2011|
The Dead Sea is in danger! The water level of this precious nature-phenomena drops over 1 meter a year. The lake's main tributary -The River Jordan- is drying up.
During the Arab spring, Lana Nasser & I started creating "LIVE! from DEAD SEA"; an artistic awareness campaign about the lake's eco-disaster. Our collaboration is a Theatre and Photographic project, based on research about the Dead Sea's cultural importance and the ecological impact of its decline. A poetical protest against harming our Earth.
In times of big global changes; we envision natures revolt in the uprising of new Mythological characters, Icons & Goddesses. This is an imagination we photographed. 'The dead sea is the womb of this planet, its drought symbolises a global state': on the stage of Al-Balad theatre in Amman we were giving voice to Nature's outcry, by projecting the photographs with related stories.
