As Far As Isolation Goes (Online)
Tania El Khoury and Basel Zaraa
A collaboration between live artist Tania El Khoury and musician and street artist Basel Zaraa
As Far As Isolation Goes (Online) is a collaboration between live artist Tania El Khoury and musician and street artist Basel Zaraa.
In this live-streamed, 1-on-1 performance, As Far As Isolation Goes uses touch, sound and interactivity to bring audience members in contact with those faced with inhumane detention centres and a mental health system that disregards their political and emotional contexts.
Reimagined for an online context during the coronavirus lockdown, the piece is built from their original collaboration entitled As Far As My Fingertips Take Me, in which Tania commissioned Basel to record a rap song inspired by the journey his sisters made from Damascus to Sweden. In As Far As Isolation Goes, Basel and Tania worked together to create another iteration of their previous piece focused on mental and physical health experiences of refugees in the United Kingdom. Basel created a song inspired by conversations with friends and colleagues who have recently claimed refuge in UK.
