Time 19:00
Date 05/07/19
Price £24

A magic visual delight from one of Beirut’s freshest young talents.

Dates and Times: Fri 5 & Sat 6 July, 15:00 & 19:00.

Conjuring up complex and wondrous images and optical illusions, Ēvolvo follows a journey from idyllic nature in the mountains of Lebanon, filled with birdsong and the buzz of insects, to the busy street-life of Beirut with its startling roofscapes and noisy traffic. A strange creature invades the city. Is it an ancient monster or an image of the city drowning in plastic pollution? The city is haunted by animal spirits. Like an openended riddle, Ēvolvo can be read in many ways, filled with wonder and visual surprises.

Ēvolvo is performed alongside the shorter work One Day and One Night Beirut.

Yara Boustany works at the crossroads of visual arts and performance. In 2015, she founded Amalgam, a theatre, dance, and circus training space in the heart of Beirut.
