The vision

‚Äč‚ÄčThis is the first edition of a series of dance laboratories, which are going to happen over the next years in Lebanon. It's a pilot project that investigates the potentials of bringing a group of people together and working intensively with the body and its personal and cultural archive. This specific lab version has the aim to foster professional education in dance and to result in a public performance but we also imagine other formats, which could be accessible for a wider range of participants. We are curious to adapt our concept according to the diverse social environments and bring transformation into people's life through movement and dance.
