Compromise

During the Intifadah, after the signing of the Oslo Accords, two of Jerusalem’s leading theater groups – the Khan Theater (Jewish) and the Al Kasaba Theater (Arab) – met to produce “Romeo and Juliet in Jerusalem”. While working together in the microcosm that is the theater and contending with the rampant hatred of the city of Verona, where love could well mean death, the actors probed the depths of their own frustrations, hatreds, and anguish. The theater’s “convention of lies” reflects the complex and charged relationship between the two groups of actors. Finally, the boundaries between the external world and them, between reality and imagination are blurred. As the project progresses they reach the conclusion that the only way they can really work together is to compromise.
