Evoking the Ephemeral is a conversation between a group of young Lebanese dancers that gathered around a creation process led by choreographer Corinne Skaff. The artists will share their experience in putting up a performance dealing with the Ephemeral and then carrying in their performing bodies the aftermath of the Beirut Explosion, a year of uprising and shattered social references. The group rejoins within the framework of BIPOD 2021 and reflect on the process, their future ambitions, and their current creative and social condition. Photo Malek Fleifel
