After graduating from the theatre department of the Lebanese University in 2004, my artistic research was oriented towards focusing on the position of the artwork within the time and space contexts of events. "Lorca" (2005), the intrusive event in the streets of Beirut, followed by the performance installation "ish ibka smu sud jud kod..." (2006) both carried the beginning of this artistic question for me. A question which started developing after I took part in establishing Zoukak Theatre Company in 2006 and later finishing my BA in Philosophy at the Lebanese university in 2008; which led me to consider the artwork as a political proposition. This concept was reinforced with the approach we chose to explore in Zoukak Company by expanding our theatrical frames to include the marginal topics, where the initial questions reside.
