Mithkal Alzghair — Displacement

Sadler’s Wells / Lilian Baylis Studio, London |

Thursday 6 July, 2017 — Friday 7 July, 2017 | 8pm–10pm

Sadler’s Wells partners with Shubbak, London’s largest biennial festival of contemporary Arab culture, to introduce the poignant work of Syrian dancer and choreographer Mithkal Alzghair. In a double bill evening, he draws attention to the human being amidst the complexities of migration and war. Deconstructing Syrian traditional dances, he brings to the surface the paradox of a deeply rooted culture and its current experience of displacement.

"This solo isn’t a documentary on the Syrian war. It touches on the fundamental question of what it is to be human"
