Under the Flesh

Bassam Abou Diab (Beirut)  

22 Oct 2021 | DiR – Dance in Residence BrandenburgDance / performance

The Lebanese choreographer is in residence in Potsdam and shows his piece Under the FleshUnder the Flesh is a contemporary dance performance that raises the question of the role of the body in situations of war. How can the body reaction to a death threat, originating from our survival instinct, transform into a dance? A dance based on imaginary rules and techniques that have been meticulously conceived like a fairytale that helps overcoming the war machine. A personal story is told, the story of a body that outlived four consecutive wars. 

Die Performance ist auf Arabisch mit deutscher Live Übersetzung. 

The artist in residency offers two workshops in the frame of our dance week Tanzintensive : here it goes to our workshop programm.
