Rough Stage

Maher is the Palestinian and to his profession engineer – but in the heart and soul a passionate dancer. He dreams of performing a modern dance performance on Ramallahs Cultural Center – the first in the cultural center’s history. But Mahers fighting an uphill battle. The freedom message in his dance work is controversial, both in his home country and in Israel. Other problems in his way are the scarce financial resources and restrictive cultural norms. His more traditional family thinks that it is high time for him to put down the dance project and acquire a wife and children.
