Hildegard De Vuyst recalls the first time a hybrid dance performance based on a traditional Palestinian/Arab dance called dabke was performed back in 2009. It occurred after a four-week workshop with 11 Palestinian performers.

"We did it outdoors in the town of Birzeit and near the mosque. It was lovely," the Brussels-based choreographer/dramaturge recalls. "And from that workshop, we have performed and altered it over the years."

Join in person in Vancouver or watch live! A conversation about BDS

Four Jewish panelists (one Israeli and three Canadians) will discuss the pros and cons of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign against Israel.

The campaign arose from a call in 2005 by various Palestinian civil society groups to exert worldwide pressure on Israel to treat its Palestinian citizens with full equality, to end the occupation of Arab lands, and to comply with provisions of international law regarding the rights of Palestinian refugees.

The four panelists:

Michael Barkusky - Economist, accountant and political activist in South Africa (1970-77) and Canada (1989 - present)

Gabor Mate - Vancouver physician and author

Yonatan Shapira - Israeli peace activist
