Event: "Curfew" Contemporary dance by El-Funoun & Hawiyya

16 March 2018 - 5:30pm
Event

War on Want is happy to be supporting “Curfew”, a contemporary dance production performed by El-Funoun (Palestine) and Hawiyya Dance Company (UK), presented by Arts Canteen. "Curfew" is a thought-provoking contemporary dance production that encourages individuals to self-reflect and take action in front of injustice.

  • Date: Friday 23 March and 24 March 2018
  • Time: 7:30 pm (both nights)
  • Place: Rich Mix London, 35 - 47 Bethnal Green Road, E1 6LA
  • Cost: £12 advance purchase, £14 at the door

With a fusion of traditional and contemporary dance moves, this production, currently at its development stage, is aimed at challenging ordinary forms of expression and creating a new form of communication to open engagement with a new audience. The production does not give an answer; rather it questions the audience and encourages them to find their own answers by exploring and reflecting on their position towards forms of oppression, injustice, and complexity. 

Please note that the performance will then be followed by Q&A session and an in-depth discussion with the audience to unpack some of the main concepts addressed through the dance representation.
