Iza Hawa - Dance Performance by Ali Chahrour
As part of Zoukak Theatre’s Co-Production Program, we hosted Ali Chahrour for a residency during the month of January, where he worked with his team including Roger Assaf and Hanan Haj Ali on a new dance performance entitled “Iza Hawa”. We are excited to see the piece being performed on 9, 10, 11 and 12 March 2023 - 8:30 PM at AlMadina Theatre, Beirut.
A wife and a husband, two thespian lovers, walk us down memory lane in a city with wounds wide open. Remnants of their life journey on stage, and through all stages of their life. All that remains of happiness and a dance performance before the curtains falls. Their city is wavering, yet still pulsing with unbending love, and ablaze with infatuated eyes. A city springing alive with every story unfolding in the heartbeats of a mother’s and father’s love.
