Arab Arts Focus: Dance Double Bill
Summerhall Festival - Demonstration Room
Dance Physical Theatre and Circus
A double bill of contemporary dance brought to Edinburgh from Palestine and Egypt. Choreographers Shaymaa Shoukry and Yazan Iwidat are each bringing their own dance piece. Mayhkomsh focuses on the theme of social judgment and adopts shaking as choreographic research, revealing the many shades and colours of one being, a woman, Sudanese, African, Arab, who's not only one thing. Running Away is a dancer portraying what’s happening inside his head, will he run away from the community that nurtured him and made him who he is? Or will he lose his individuality?
