Dancing on the Edge Urgent artistic dialogues with the middle east



In the Lost & Found

Lana Nasser

“I was not always a woman, an Arab or a Muslim, these things only came with time.” ┬áContemplating the predicament of her gender, and of imposed and acquired identities, a woman explores herself in language, culture, and the media. Drawing on personal experience and collected stories, she symbolically addresses projections and social taboos.
With an inventive combination of English and Arabic texts as well as movement, Nassar wrestles and dances with her disparate realities, finding liberation in the roots of things and in their re-interpretation.

In the Lost and Found has been performed in Amman, Luxembourg and New York.

“A work of international quality which addresses sensitive issues that audiences here are not accustomed ot hearing – and in a completely new manner.” – Al Ghad Newspaper, Amman, Jordan
