Heroes - Surface of a Revolution / Khouloud Yassine (LB)

Bazaar festival
performance length: min

The 2019 Bazaar Festival starts off with a choreographic creation focusing on representations of the Body in relation to Power. How does someone’s body become a symbol of power? Is it someone else’s power that creates an image inside of us so strong that we submit to it? Or is it we, the masses thirsty for leaders, who create and maintain it? When the body falls, how is the fall of power announced? Lebanese dancer/choreographer explores these questions in a performance tracing the rise and fall of power, playing with its gestures, building a victory and witnessing its demise. She creates her own image of body and power, then destroys it to see what happens.
