Mark the anniversary of Great March of Return in Gaza with us as we oppose the artwashing of Israeli Apartheid in NYC
On March 27, just days before the one-year anniversary of Gaza’s Great March of Return, Batsheva Dance Company will be performing in NYC as a willing participant in the Israeli government’s Brand Israel public relations campaign that uses art and culture to divert attention from Israel’s violent repression of the Palestinian people, including Israel’s war crimes and crimes against Palestinian protesters in Gaza.
Batsheva’s North American tour is being promoted by the Israeli government’s Office of Cultural Affairs. Batsheva refuses to disavow its close partnership with the Israeli government. Batsheva’s NYC host, BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music), rejected Adalah-NY’s request to meet to discuss its complicity in the Brand Israel campaign and Israel’s decades of denial of Palestinian freedom.
So we’ll protest! With music from the Rude Mechanical Orchestra and dancing from the Freedom Dabka group, we'll let Batsheva and BAM know that art should be for liberation, not whitewashing colonization. Help mark the one-year anniversary of Gaza’s Great March of Return here in NYC, and come participate in the 15th annual Israeli Apartheid Week.
