Middle East & North Africa Focus
Fighting and The Resilience of the Body
A rare opportunity to experience the new voices and beats coming out of North Africa with a double bill of meditative, contemporary dance from Egyptian multidisciplinary artist Shaymaa Shoukry, testing the ongoing perseverance of the human spirit, questioning the reality of our internal and external fights, and refining our ability to carry on. From one of North Africa’s rising stars, this double bill examines how we might find continuity and perseverance in the world we live in today.
- Post show discussion with Shaymaa Shoukry, hosted by Richard Wakely.
Also, join Shaymaa Shoukry and interdisciplinary artist Youness Atbane to hear more about the arts scene in North Africa after the performance of UNTITLED 14 KM on Saturday 15 October.
Part of BIAF’s 2022 focus on artists from the Middle East and North Africa.
Supported by the British Council.
