Dancing on the Edge Urgent artistic dialogues with the middle east




Duda Paiva, Yaser Khaseb / Dancing on the Edge

During his trip to the Netherlands during the Dancing on the Edge Festival in 2007, Yaser met with the well known dance/puppetry artist, Duda Paiva. A great synergy was found between the two and Cloud is the result of their artistic collaboration.

In this performance, a rebellious piece of cloud detaches itself from the comfort of blues skies to embark on an earthly adventure where it meets two people – the Dutch/Brazilian Duda Paiva and Iranian Yaser Khaseb, two men of totally different cultural backgrounds. They use the amorphous cloud to find their mutual language.
