Narciss de Chadi Haber

"نارسيس" الموجود في كلّ واحدٍ منّا. تارةً نقترب منه وطوراً نبتعد عنه. نلتصق به أو نفكّ ارتباطنا به. ولكن... وكلّ القضية في تلك الـ "لكن"... لماذا "نارسيس" المسرحية؟ "نارسيس" مسرحية حول الانتظار، حول الشخصية المتأرجحة في ضياعها بين الحرب والموت، بين الماضي والمستقبل، بين النرجسية المفرطة والنرجسية المتخفّية أو المختفية. مسرحية تحاكي المشاعر والأحاسيس فتدعو للإرتقاء نحو الصفاء.

Heroes a dance performance by Khouloud Yassine

HEROES / Surface of a Revolution By Khouloud Yassine “Heroes (Surface of revolution)” is a choreographic creation focusing on the subject of representations of the body in relation to power. It questions the body as a medium of influence that is mediatised through the image of itself. Is it power that creates the image within us? Or is it rather we, masses thirsty for leaders, who create and maintain it? How does someone’s body become a symbol of power? How, by the body’s own fall, is the fall of power announced? How do the changes in the image of a hero, an icon or an idol operate? What about this disturbing feeling that is profoundly destabilising when we attempt to hold on to, or let go of, a power that is in the midst of this decline? Heroes become “accessible” and more easily identifiable as their bodies resemble ours more and more. Is this not an illusion?

Devil's eye - Ein el Chitan

“Devil’s eye” On his birthday, Najib Al Rihani got from Sayid Darwish a photograph with a handwritten note on it reading “From a dead man to the dead”. From this, we were inspired to shape an audiovisual, musical and theatrical rendition of Sayid Darwish songs – he who initiated the Arabic song following the renaissance - which he has composed in the beginning of the previous century. We’ve remolded the songs while emphasizing on the dark demonic side of the composer of the Egyptian national anthem.

Metrophone présents Halim el Roumi

Metrophone presents “Halim El Roumi”. Why Metrophone? Lebanese radio broadcasting stations have given up on offering to the world their musical archive – an archive of amazing talents and legendary names that haven’t been well acknowledged, appreciated nor promoted since the beginning even though they were produced by Lebanese stations. These stations chose to promote certain artists instead of others and especially during the 60s and the 70s, imposing on the Arab world some faces and voices while leaving behind other great talents that could have easily defined Lebanese music. With the radio stations still refusing to spread the songs and the voices that we have yet to embrace and explore, the voices that complement Al Rahbani, Wadih Al Safi, Sabah and Zaki Nassif at times, it has become imperative for us to seek them out and complete the picture defining Lebanese Music. And so, Metrophone was born by bringing back forgotten yet significant music archives, bringing back the art, the lyrics and the tunes, that had long been eclipsed, in order to revive the Lebanese musical history.
