Creative Tensions: HOME
Arab Arts Focus Talks & Pitch Sessions
Roundabout @ Summerhall - Roundabout
An IDEO + Sundance Institute Theatre Program Production What is home? Is it a place, a feeling, an identity? Is it safety or belonging? Does it come with us when we move or do we leave it behind? Is the notion of 'home' rapidly evolving in light of current world migration? Creative Tensions A unique live event series where participatory theatre meets collective conversation. Devised in collaboration with IDEO, Creative Tensions explores the opposing forces that inform our daily lives and is a collective conversation expressed in movement, wherein participants reveal where they stand on an issue by virtue of where they stand in the room. Guided by a moderator and provoked by speakers (we call them protagonists) who approach the topic from different perspectives, Creative Tensions is an eye-opening, reflective, and inspiring live experience. Protagonists: Hanane Hajj Ali (Lebanon) TBC, TBC (UK) Moderator: Philip Himberg (USA) Arab Arts Focus Talks Programme supported by Tamasi Collective for the Performing Arts and curated by Jumana Al-Yasiri, Sundance Institute Theatre Programme.
