Un/controlled gestures

June 3, 2022 @ 8:30 pm 9:00 pm

After a successful online workshop in January, the choreographers of “Un|Controlled gestures, 2nd Edition” met in May for a first residency in Cairo.
Under the curatorial direction of Nedjma Hadj Benchelabi and Shaymaa Shoukry, Aїda Jamal (Morocco), Lori Kharpoutlian (Lebanon), Mehdi Dahkan (Morocco), Noura Seif and Salma Abdel Salam (NASA4NASA) (Egypt ), Nermin Habib (Egypt), Yara Boustany (Lebanon) and Ziad Wallace (Egypt) will be presenting on June 3rd, 2022 at 8:30 p.m. in a public event the “work in progress” of our dance residency’s 2nd edition, which is dedicated to the topic of “deceleration”.
Definitely, for many, the involuntary deceleration that we’ve experienced as a result of the pandemic has only highlighted the constraints under which they were living.
The lack of mobility has exacerbated the uncontrolled gestures that already limited freedom in our daily life and artistic expression.
Un|Controlled Gestures, is a project that explores the power of body language, the power to imagine new futures, to move and transform our present selves and potentially others. The 2nd edition of “Un|Controlled Gestures” is an initiative of the Goethe-Institut in cooperation with HAU Hebbel am Ufer Berlin and is curated by Nedjma Hadj Benchelabi and Shaymaa Shoukry.Free Entry
