Wujoud wa Hodoud
The word “Wojoud” meaning “Existence” and the word “Hodoud” meaning “Borders” in Arabic, together draw personal stories of land, nation, division and struggle into the body and voice of eight Arab artists.
This dance production is a 60-minute-piece that combines technology with the human form, as well as scripted intentionality with spontaneity, into a kinetic narrative of the human condition.
