Beyond a certain point, movement itselfs changes by Ghida Hachicho

Tuesday, May 14 - 8.45pm

Wednesday, May 15 - 8.45pm

Citerne Beirut

Between two checkpoints, a choreography emerges. A constantly transforming spatial configuration dictates certain movements or restricts it. The question that arises afterwards, can a planned or organized movement change that space in return? The work is a performative lecture that explores the spatial dynamics of the Mathaf crossing and its continuous transformation during the Lebanese Civil War up to 1987, when an organized protest dismantled that border for just one day.

Co-produced by Citerne Beirut & BIPOD Festival with the support of Maqamat, apap - Performing Europe 2020 and Ashkal Alwan.

Azi Dahaka by Mitra Ziaee Kia & Hiva Sedaghat

Friday, May 17 - 8.45pm

Saturday, May 18 - 8.45pm

Citerne Beirut

Zahak - known to be an evil figure in Persian mythology, takes on the form of Azi Dahaka in ancient Persian folklore. This tale of Azi Dahaka is one in which a man with human qualities, shape shifts into a terrifying brain-eating dragon, as soon as he is faced with pain, agony, sorrow and fear. It is within this myth that Mitra and Hiva locate themselves, taking the audience into the dark atmosphere of a human’s slow transformation into a monster. Light, fabric, foam and plastic, Azi Dahaka is a visual and somatic rendering of the birth of a monster.

Co-produced by Citerne Beirut & Bipod Festival with the support of Maqamat and apap - Performing Europe 2020.
