Beirut Physical Lab

Bassam Abou Diab
Contemporary Dance

Beirut Physical Lab is an independent organization that aims to develop the physical theater and contemporary dance scene in Beirut and its surroundings. Its objective is to support amateur and professional artists by creating a safe space to express themselves, work on their personal projects, and give them tools to develop their skills. Beirut Physical Lab focuses on the language of movement in performing art by encouraging artists to deepen the relation of their art and bodies to the local context, by making dance education more accessible and reducing the cultural gap present in the country.
