As Far As My Fingertips Take Me is an encounter through a gallery wall between an audience member and a refugee. Their fingertips touch without seeing each other. The refugee will mark the audience. The audience will listen to those who have recently challenged border discrimination. Those stories can be kept or washed away.

Tania El Khoury commissioned musician and street artist Basel Zaraa who was born a Palestinian refugee in Syria to record a song inspired by the journey his sisters made from Damascus to Sweden. 

CREATION BY Tania El Khoury
SONG BY Basel Zaraa (vocals, bass and keyboard): with Emily Churchill Zaraa (vocals), Pete Churchill (music production) and Katie Stevens (flute and clarinet).

Commissioned by "On The Move" LIFT 2016 in partnership with Royal Court Theatre, London.
