SAND IN THE EYES

author and director: Rabih Mroué, LEBANON & GERMANY

We condemn the murderous acts of ISIS as unacceptable. And what about the killing of terrorists by

drones?The Lebanese-German conceptual creator tests (our) boundaries of the endurability of perception of killing. It connects the fictional world of media with REality of killing. It brings facts, asks questions, but answers have to be found by visitors, as well as their REaction to these facts may be different.

directed by Tania El Khoury, UNITED KINGDOM & LEBANON

What is it like when a story of someone you do not know will hit you deeply? Forexample, a Syrian refugee? How far can fingertips take a man?

NIGHT

circolando – transdisciplinary creation space, PORTUGAL

directed by André Braga & Cláudia Figueiredo

Night is a time of dreams and ghosts, but also of encounters with our own subconscious and ego.The Night is, from the perspective of three Portuguese performers and one DJ, the time for outsiders, who cannot belong to the society that lives during the daytime. That’s why the arena space created from a hundred tires on the stage will generate, with a help of the unique physical theatre, an exhausting fight for a better place in the world.
