The story of Mohamedou Ould Slahi, how was unlawfully detained in Guantánamo Bay for 14 years, and now asks for freedom and forgiveness: FREEDOM.


The starting point for the dance production FREEDOM is the story of Mohamedou Ould Slahi. He was unlawfully detained in Guantanamo Bay for 14 years, where he was tortured and interrogated, without ever being charged. He wrote his story in his book The Guantanamo Diary that was turned into a Golden Globe-winning film, ‘The Mauritanian’. As a writer, Ould Slahi advocates a world in which freedom is an innate right and forgiveness is a core value.

“Today I decide to forgive you. Not because you apologised, or because you acknowledged the pain that you caused me, but because my soul deserves peace.”
