Focus Young Arab Choreographers


The Focus Young Arab Choreographers project has been designed with the goal of facilitating mobility, intercultural dialogue and exchange of performative practices among Arab artists and Italian organizations, creating opportunities of meeting, work sessions and presentations of performances.
Between May and October 2017 – within the various artistic projects, festivals, showcases, residencies of the eleven organizations belonging to the network – the Focus presented six young choreographers coming from countries of the Mediterranean basin: Sharaf Dar Zaid (Palestine), Bassam Abou Diab (Lebanon), Hamdi Dridi (Tunisia), Mounir Saeed (Egypt), Jadd Tank (Lebanon), Guy Nader (Lebanon).
The young artists, selected from the BIPOD-Beirut International Platform of Dance, and in collaboration with Beirut Maqamat Dance Theater, MIBACT and MAEC, have toured Italy from Turin to Matera, presenting their shows, sharing their poetics and deepen within artistic residencies their own researches.
