About This Show

Across Syria, many gardens conceal the dead bodies of activists and protesters who took to the streets during the early periods of the uprising against the Ba’athist government in 2011. These domestic burials play out a continuing collaboration between the living and the dead — each providing safety, truth and a voice for each other. In Gardens Speak, Lebanese artist Tania El Khoury carefully reconstructs the oral histories of ten ordinary people and transforms Syrian statistics into universal, human stories via a stunning, full-body interactive experience.

Each narrative has been carefully constructed with the friends and family members of the deceased to retell their stories as they themselves may have recounted it. Gardens Speak was a sold-out experience at The Public’s Under The Radar Festival in New York, so don’t miss this limited engagement!
