FRIENDLY FIRE is about deep memories hidden inside one’s body. Mind-souvenirs of people who’ve grown up in trouble spots – places they nevertheless love, because they are called “home”. A home where they have seen friendly fires, humanitarian bombings. Where they themselves might have been targets when waiting for love.
We are playing in a shattered film, filled with a multitude of uniforms worn by different types of security forces.
Bodies remember old marks and reflect the past, even after they stopped crying in crisis areas.
Nowadays, we can joke and dance with the cluster ammunitions and a security that is potentially frightening.
How to dance on a minefield……
