Event Description

Danas

Mawt Saghir – First Movement

Directed by Ali Chahrour

Choreographed & performed by Ali Chahrour and Emilie Thomas Mansour

9, 10, 16 & 17 March 2012 - Maqamat Dance House – 8.30pm

 

My sisters’ lamentations have raised in me the desire to dance.

My mother is crying over my grave. Her sobs make me want to sing.

Lying on top of me, a corpse. Its cold flesh and dying fluids try to seduce me, pulling my body in a perfect embrace, endless orgasm.

Sighs and stifled tears gush from my father as if to masturbate over my picture faded by time.


Danas exposes destitute bodies. Moving bodies in search of motivation, might it be a soul or anything that could make them reclaim their self-control. An instinctive quest for a meaning or a vanished reality. A reality condemned by religious texts and scientific progress. A reality whose only relief is to echo the farewell cries blaming its absence.

Danas inhabits the intimate moments of a buried body
A body in a mass grave
In a morgue
At the bottom of the ocean
A body lifted by men in a funeral procession
A cremated body
A stuffed body
A body without skeleton
nor hips
A schizophrenic body
Amnesic
Decapitated at birth
and ignored by history...
