White Torture by Lorent Saleh
Lorent Saleh, one of the 2017 Sakharov Prize Laureates from the democratic opposition in Venezuela, staged the performance "White torture" at the garage of the European Parliament in Brussels on 18 February. Trapped in a cage, he showed the suffering of his imprisonment, during which he spent most of the 4 years and 2 months in solitary confinement. Saleh re-created the atmosphere of a torture centre, thanks to lighting effects, special sounds and several volunteers playing the part of police officers or prisoners.
