Jerusalem (2013) by the important Flemish theatre company, Berlin, is both a performance-film and a visual installation. The work, which its creators define as a “portrait of a city”, is based on a singular combining of videos shot in Jerusalem—from the Wailing Wall to the Palestinian camps—and interviews with its inhabitants: Jews, Muslims and Christians.

Jerusalem is the first part of the Holocene cycle, a series of works dedicated to “city portraits”. To create it, the Berlin theatre company has visited Jerusalem in 2003—when the first version of the project came into being—and returned to the city last year to film new material and fresh statements from their original interviewees in order to trace the socio-political changes that had come about in the city over the decade.
