Men of the Land of Fire
Category: Performing Arts
Year: 2016
Status: Open

This is a dance performance that invokes the presence of men in mourning rituals, and deals with the concept of inherited modern masculinity with all the authoritarian, social, and political connotations that it carries. The project explores its topic via the concept of Land of Fire, with its religious dimensions related to hell and punishment in the afterlife, as well as the concept of Burnt Land with its war-related political dimension and the ends and beginnings it leads to.



Fatmeh
Category: Performing Arts
Year: 2013
Status: Closed

An interactive contemporary dance performance explores the aesthetics of music appreciation within Arabic culture and how it manifests as body expression among the Arab youth today, particularly in relationship to Beirut, a focal point for many young Arab artists and art appreciators. The songs of Um Kulthum are used as the testing ground for this project’s study, being equally familiar to the dancers participating and the audiences alike as the most exalted artistic and social expression that has shaped Arab cultural taste.
