ONE DANCE WEEK: #minaret на Omar Rajeh | Maqamat (Ливан)

War, conflicts, destruction. Every day we witness how people and cities, ideas and cultures die. What do we do then? Are we able to change anything? Do we take a stance? Do we ignore it?

#minaret is an invitation to ask ourselves all these questions.

#minaret in an artistic reaction against the destruction of ancient cities like Aleppo and the historical minaret of its Grand Mosque. The monument that soared above the city for 1 000 years lies in ruins now.

It is a wake-up call from our stupor. Because war is something we should not get used to.

The pre-premiere of #minaret by Arab star choreographer Omar Rajeh will be held at the opening of the 11th edition of ONE DANCE WEEK. Bulgarian audiences have the chance to see the production a week before its world premiere in the Romaeuropa festival in Rome.
