Omar Rajeh / Maqamat Dance Theatre (Lebanon) - #minaret

The title of Rajeh's new performance #minaret refers to the Great Mosque in Aleppo, Syrian, which has been watching over the city for nearly 1000 years. The soul of the city, a stone witness of cultural, social and religious life through the ages. Now the mosque and the city are in ruins.

#minaret is an act of resisting the destruction of one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in the world. And against war violence in general. It is also a protest against our blunting for the images of destruction that reach us non-stop through various media. In #minaret it is inevitable that the drone flies over the dancers and films the performance. "A remotely controlled, disruptive, haunting presence. It falls from heaven, but is in human hands. A disaster of the new war gods. "(Dresdner Nachrichten).
