OUR SEA I: CHOREOGRAPHY FOR A WOMAN AND A STONE

Our Sea I: Choreography for a Woman and a Stone is the first installment in a series of myths, realities and explorations that will take the lebanese marathon runner, performance artist and director Lily Abichahine through coastal cities across the Mediterranean Sea.

Accompanied by the Sicilian video artist Genny Petrotta and the Lebanese sound artist Jad Atoui she runs through the ruins, sites of construction and continuous destruction along the coastlines of Beirut and Palermo – witnesses of a continuous cycle that entails wars, disasters and fatal urban illegalities. The tragic commonalities of the two cities are staged through the exploration of the myth of Sisyphus.

Our Sea I: Choreography for a Woman and a Stone è la prima puntata di una serie di miti, realtà ed esplorazioni che porteranno la maratoneta, performance artist e regista libanese Lily Abichahine attraverso le città costiere del Mediterraneo.

Accompagnata dalla video artista siciliana Genny Petrotta e dall'artista sonoro libanese Jad Atoui, Abichahine percorre le rovine, i cantieri e le continue distruzioni lungo le coste di Beirut e Palermo - testimoni di un ciclo continuo che comporta guerre, disastri e fatali illeciti urbani. I tragici punti in comune delle due città sono messi in scena attraverso l’esplorazione del mito di Sisifo.
