For its 17th edition of BIPOD- Beirut International Platform of Dance, Maqamat company invites cultural partners in 8 different countries to co-curate, organize, and gather around the project entitled Architecture of a Ruined Body. Artists, festivals and cultural venues meet to question the body’s remaining possibilities, vulnerabilities, resilience or revolt, and simply its being in moments of crisis. We acknowledge that the world we live in is in a phase of global transformation and change. After the shocking social, political, and health conditions of 2019 & 2020, it seems inevitable that culture is at the forefront to question and be questioned, to explore and be explored, to renew thought and be renewed.
