Sidewalks

"Zoukak Sidewalks" is a point of encounter providing a shared space between international artists, local practitioners, students and interested audiences. Through a program of artist talks, workshops and performances, spread across the year, Zoukak Sidewalks aims to spur debate around performance practices and create the opportunity to get a closer look on processes of creation and thought of various accomplished artists and companies, and possibly produce the momentum for new and unexpected collaborations. Each month a contemporary practitioner or company is invited for a residency in Zoukak's studio to share their practice by showing works in progress, performing pieces of finished work (solo or group performances, play-readings), opening up practical work processes through workshops and master classes and confronting audiences with their discourse through talks and informal encounters. In 2016 Zoukak organized the first edition of Zoukak Sidewalks-The Festival as a platform for artistic exchange and a space for intercultural reflection. Zoukak Sidwalks-The Festival took place over the course of eight days, included the showcase “Focus Liban” and gathering local and international artists and cultural operators.

 

Focus Liban

Zoukak launched Focus Liban in 2015, in partnership with the French Institute, as a platform to support the presentation and dissemination of the work of local performing artists. As a direct result of this showcase, local artists’ works were presented in various prestigious festivals around Europe.

Performance: Dystopia

Thursday, March 22, 2018 - 20:30 to 22:00

A permanent conflict and a total affliction that tears up our lives at every moment, while everything rises up and works against our being. Our memories are fragile, the violence is nested, and the infirmity is present, although we are searching for a dream even in tragedies.
