There Is A Field is a play about Aseel Asleh, a 17-year old Palestinian citizen of Israel killed by police in October 2000. Based on interviews and primary sources collected over 15 years, the play offers a uniquely personal lens for understanding inequality as the root of state violence and impunity. Currently, There Is A Field is being used as a basis of community residencies in which participants explore the connections between state violence and structural inequalities in Israel and the United States.
