What was a tragedy for Aristotle and what is it today? To begin to touch upon this subject we hold firmly to the conception of all arts being a mime. Creating a line of movement is equivalent to writing a line of words. In order to retrace our steps, our history, we return to the ancient conception of what a tragedy is. We will make use of the emotion pity which acts as one of the main components inducing catharsis in the audience. In the pentalogy PITY Iraqi Bodies re-devise Shakespeare’s play ‘Othello’.

 

PITY: Part 3 deals with the character of Emilia. Re-baptized as Imila, she confronts a contemporary restaging where the destiny(ies) of an imaginary Yazidi tribe is traced.
