A meditation upon the price of freedom in the face of idolising love we follow a woman's treacherous journey towards an attempt at becoming an autonomous individual freed from the shackles of disillusionment.

PITY: Part 4 is the fourth part of Iraqi Bodies’ pentalogy PITY in which Shakespeare’s play Othello is re-devised in a contemporary setting.

In the fourth chapter we meet the love-sick Desdemona. The previous parts have premiered and performed since 2018 at venues such as Atalante, Göteborgs Stadsteater, GBG Mime Fest and toured festivals in the Middle East.

Developed in residency at Danscentrum Väst

The work of Iraqi Bodies explores the link between movement and gesture, between dance and physical theater. Their artistic practice is deeply anchored in the theory and method of Antonin Artaud, Jerzy Grotowski, Eugène Ionesco, Samuel Beckett and others. By letting the body speak of the trauma of life and the predicament of man their work wishes to transcend any human differences and instead create scenes to show a reality shared by all. A poetic reality that finds the light in the deepest darkness of life.

Iraqi Bodies have been recognized for their works such as Unidentified, Vowels, Gerontion and Possessed. Each piece is a unique process depending on the themes explored and involves performers, set designers and musicians from all corners of the earth.

Iraqi Bodies are based in Gothenburg, Sweden, led by Artistic Directors Anmar Taha and Josephine Gray.
