Rico in the Night
Palestine | 2007 | 8:10 | Fiction, Experimental, Live Action
This short video-art collaboration between Yaqubi and French dancer-choreographer Jean Gaudin is evidence of a new standard and style of video art production being undertaken in the West Bank. Yaqubi places Gaudin's enigmatic character Rico in the heart of a Ramallah night, setting the dancer's staccato movements against a backdrop of the nocturnal city's hospitals, empty market places, family homes, and refugee camp alleyways. Neither narrative nor entirely abstract, this is a mood piece in which Rico takes the audience on a surreal whirlwind tour of a city as close to sleep as it ever gets.
