Today | Laurence Yadi - Cie 7273 - Bipod 2024

Today Thursday 18th @ Abroyan Factory/Union Marks (8:30 PM) Laurence Yadi | Companie 7273 Performance in Beirut made possible with the support of the Swiss Embassy in Lebanon Duration: 35 minutes About the company Laurence Yadi, a French choreographer of mixed heritage, is known for developing the dance style Multi styles FuittFuitt, inspired by Arabic music. In 2003, she co-founded the Company 7273 with Nicolas Cantillon, and their creations have been acclaimed worldwide. Laurence Yadi has been awarded several prizes, including the prestigious Swiss Dance and Choreography Prize in 2011. Today, she continues to exercise her artistic and educational talent internationally, supported by various institutions and organizations. About the performance For the first time, since the creation of Compagnie 7273, dancer and choreographer Laurence Yadi develops a creation alone. Charged with her personal history and her magnetic presence on stage, she invites us to join her in a world that will transcribe a range of emotions kept secret. In this work, the choreographers aim to intertwine two essential aspects of the body: the body as an object and the body as a subject. To dance is to utilize the body as a means of communication; it is to animate it as a dynamic and expressive entity, one that is both psychological and organic. Each movement serves as a vivid and pulsating element through which tensions and nuances flow, transforming the body into a resonant melody. The body becomes a powerful symbol that bears witness, evolving into a political and geo-artistic entity.

Workshop with Roser Lopez Espinoza - Bipod 2024

Floorwork and movement research with Roser López Espinosa Friday 19th @ Abroyan Factory/Union Marks (10 AM - 1 PM ) Workshop in Beirut made possible with the support of the Spanish Embassy in Lebanon and Acción Cultural Española, AC/E through the Programme for the Internationalisation of Spanish Culture (PICE) Duration: 3 hours About the workshop This workshop proposes a movement approach from the basis of an articulated and creative body. We will take advantage of the rich movement capacity of the spine as a motor, to search on curves, spirals, twists, ripples and combined undulating movements, paying special attention to the functional use of our anatomy for our maximum movement potential. We will go through floor-work practices with rolls, glides and simple acrobatic movements. We will explore the combination of supports and weight transfers that will progressively unfold from initial subtle moves to shared paths of greater complexity. And we will put into practice the use of different eye ranges, detail, precision and playfulness. We can create a singular and meaningful movement vocabulary when we find our own sources: what moves us from within and how we connect to our physical imagination.

Workshop With MORITZ OSTRUSCHNJAK - Bipod 2024

Saturday 20th of April: 3 - 6 PM @ Amadeus - Dance & Music School Workshop in Beirut made possible with the support of the Goethe-Institut Libanon & NPN-Nationales Performance Netz PRICE: 25 USD The workshop consists of two parts, dealing with Moritz Ostruschnjak’s choreographic methods of copy & paste, cut & mix, that combines extremely heterogeneous movement materials. "The copy & paste button will become our leitmotif. We will be taking on the present-day dictate of copying and moving from being an inventor to becoming a thief. Taken from the happy hunting grounds of the World Wide Web, every movement, every sound, every image will be a possible prey for us. From contemporary choreography to cheerleading, from the video game Fortnite to shampoo commercials, from viral dance moves to the globally marketed pose of Michelangelo's David.“ (Moritz Ostruschnjak) In part 1 we will start with a little warm-up, followed by the participants learning a short sequence of Moritz Ostruschnjaks piece TANZANNWEISUNGEN, which works choreographically with an extremely diverse canon of movement (youth culture, classic ballet, ballroom dancing, sports etc) in rapid succession In part 2 the participants will create their own short movement phrase based on Moritz Ostruschnjaks method copy & paste, cut & mix with which TANZANNWEISUNGEN as well as other Ostruschnjak works was created.

I woke up a Sweaty Human | Dalia Khalife - Bipod 2024

I Woke Up a Sweaty Human Sunday 20th @ Abroyan Factory/Union Marks (7 PM) Dalia Khalife Performance in Beirut made possible with the support of the British Council in Lebanon Duration: 19 minutes NEW CREATION About the company Dalia Khalife is a hybrid ; a performer/dancer, a multidisciplinary artist, and a scenographer based in Beirut. She examines psycho-physiological happenings within power structures, social events, and rituals, and their theatricality. She looks at the pivotal moment of rupture, the delicate “fine line”, the liminal space in between, revealing themselves as paradoxes and satirical contradictions, as entry points to a deeper understanding. She has performed in Lebanon, Italy, South Korea, Belgium and The Netherlands, and the UAE. About the performance In this work, Dalia Khalife sets her physical movements to the backdrop of her life-sized (sweaty) digital avatar, raising questions on the boundaries and liminal space between the human form and its simulation. The performance ties itself to her Beirut based project exploring “sweat” as a socio-political and paradoxical condition, set against the backdrop of Lebanon's recent economic collapse. It weaves a choreographic language from a bodily archive and contemplates how the body encapsulates the intensity of experiences like ecstasy, abjection, elation, and grief.

Two | Omar Rajeh - Bipod 2024

Two | Beirut Saturday 20th @ Abroyan Factory/Union Marks (8:30 PM) Omar Rajeh| Maqamat Duration: 35 minutes NEW CREATION About the artist Omar Rajeh is a renowned figure in contemporary dance, making a significant impact in Lebanon and the Arab world. As the founder of Maqamat in Beirut, he moved on to establish his company in Lyon, earning recognition from the French Ministry of Culture as a 'Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.' With a BA in Theatre Studies from the Lebanese University and an MA in Dance Studies from the University of Surrey, Rajeh's over twenty choreographic creations transcend conventional boundaries, challenging perceptions of body unity and singularity.His works, characterized by vigorous movements and profound socio-political connections, resonate powerfully, leaving an enduring impact on the audience. Over two decades, Rajeh has woven, explored, and refined a unique choreographic language, taking his performances to over a hundred cities globally and participating in major dance festivals world wide.Beyond his artistic achievements, Rajeh's contributions extend to founding the Beirut International Platform of Dance (BIPOD) in 2004, a pivotal dance festival offering an international program of performances, workshops, lectures, and meetings. Co-founding the Masahat Dance Network, spanning Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, and Jordan, Rajeh's commitment to regional connectivity culminated in the Moultaqa Leymon platform, fostering opportunities for emerging and established Arab artists.In the heart of Beirut, Rajeh unveiled Citerne Beirut, a new performing arts space, demonstrating his dedication to enriching the cultural landscape. Although dismantled in August 2019, the space aimed to propel Maqamat's projects towards an enhanced experience, reaching a broader audience.As the co-founder of Citerne.live, a digital cultural platform, Rajeh continues to innovate, bridging technology and the arts for wider accessibility. In essence, Omar Rajeh's work goes beyond dance, contributing significantly to the cultural tapestry of the region with a focus on inclusivity and connection. About the performance Two is an adaptation of the group piece Cent Mille Façons de Parler, choreographed by Omar Rajeh in 2021. This duet featuring Charlie Prince and Francesco Ferrari draws inspiration from the love poems and philosophies of Persian poets Jalal Al-Dīn Rūmī and Shams-ed-Dīn Tabrīzī. Departing from traditional notions of romantic love, the work portrays love as an active force, a catalyst for presence and growth. In this instance, the act of creation bring alongside it a moment of destruction and collapse. Love, in its most potent form, emerges as a source of motivation. It instills courage, allowing individuals to engage with others, have faith in the journey of life, and navigate its ever-evolving spiral of change.
