Tomor­row is the best Day of my Life

What puts a body in a sta­te of vul­nera­bi­li­ty, sur­ren­der, or resistance?

By dis­sec­ting emo­ti­ons through actions, this new work by thea­ter maker Yara Bou Nas­sar, embo­dies moments of fra­gi­li­ty and resis­tance that are expe­ri­en­ced in pri­va­te or public spaces.

The per­for­mance emer­ges from a deco­n­struc­tion of habits, memo­ries, and obses­si­ons asso­cia­ted with rela­ti­ons­hip dyna­mics and trau­ma. The text takes us through frag­ments of ever­y­day beha­vi­or, coping mecha­nisms, and encoun­ters that echo wit­hin us beco­m­ing a part of our iden­ti­ty. By revi­si­t­ing the per­so­nal fami­ly archi­ve, the work expo­ses inti­ma­te impul­ses car­ri­ed from child­hood to adult­hood. It also ques­ti­ons the legi­ti­ma­cy of pre­ser­ving memo­ries through images and the trans­for­ma­ti­on of the pri­va­te space in war­ti­me and crisis.
