"In times of frozen dialogue between Israelis and Palestinians, a laboratory was created: Palestinians came to joint meetings in Tel Aviv, Israelis went to joint productions in the West Bank. Quietly but surely, they met each other and built relations - underneath the everyday surface. Within the difficult reality that we live in, I should not allude that art can bring political changes. However, I know that we created a group full of energy and life. And where there is life – there is hope." Yael Perlov
