22 Percent: A Disintegrating Data Visualization is a dance theater, projection, and music performance exploring the dissolution of Palestinian land since the founding of Israel. The amount of land known as “Historic Palestine” which remained under Palestinian control after the 1948 partition is commonly referred to as approximately 22%. Through a solo dance and storytelling performance, an original score, and an animation depicting the last 70 years of land loss, the project will engage the audience in a journey of kinetic empathy, challenging both performer and audience to visualize a life lived at a fraction of its fullest.
Performances are Friday and Saturday March 22nd and 23rd, 2019 from 7:00-7:30 pm at the Anderson Gallery (907 1/2 W. Franklin St.) located on VCU's campus. The performance space is on the fourth floor, and is unfortunately accessible only by staircase.
