We Love Arabs, tells the story of an Israeli choreographer, brimming with good intentions, who casts an Arab dancer – the only one he knows – for the premiere of a piece about peace and coexistence. The choreographer talks and talks, piling up clichés and banalities about culture, politics, and religion. The dancer is silent. Then they begin to dance: an improbable duet, sensual and potentially explosive…
Together they are beautiful, silly, brilliant: their remarkable encounter veers between total hilarity and searing emotion. An insightful and necessary piece about the beauty and complexity of relating to the Other.
