'In the silence of love you will find the spark of life' - RUMI This open Studio is a short presentation of the work process of Omar Rajeh's new creation that will premiere in November 2021 at Espaces des Arts – Chalon sur Soâne. Inspired by the Persian poet Jalal-al-Din Rumi’s love poems, Cent Mille Façons de Parler is a work about desire, passion, and extreme moments of love. Rumi serves, in this performance, as a starting point to explore the question of Love in its extreme, in its becoming a drive, a passion, and a way of life.
Maqamat is a dance company that was established in Beirut in 2002 by Omar Rajeh and moved to Lyon in 2020 in the perspective of developing its creative and cultural projects in France and internationally.
