Description: 
In collaboration with War Child Holland, Sustainable Democracy Centre, and Peace Youth Clubs, Zoukak used Mashrah Watani (Perform Autopsy) as an interactive platform to collect and assemble individual stories about the war. These narratives provided the basis for another performance titled ?Jana, Jana, Jana? (Heavens) in 2014. It was performed in over 20 locations targeting schools, universities and the mass in general. In this performance, the story of the fierce history of Lebanon through the voices of three women was told, addressing conventional understanding of masculinity and patriarchy in Lebanon as well as its influence on historiography. It also addresses individuals? emotional experiences with historical narratives, as well as the amnesty law in 1991.
