NON


Created in Beirut on June 2nd 2006 to mark the first anniversary of the assasination of lebanese journalist Samir Kassir, this piece draws into the material of memory, war, fear and fascination that the composer transforms. The sounds of machine guns and explosions roar over the dancer's steps in a quasi-tauromachic struggle and ritual, a tragic dimension that reinforces the feeling of an inalienable freedom.
