Overview

Initiated on August 2017, “Wojoud Wa Hodoud” went through 3 phases.

Phase 1: Duet

The word “Wojoud” meaning “Existence” and the word “Hodoud” meaning “Borders” in Arabic, together draw personal stories of land, nation, division and struggle into the body and voice of two brothers. “The Duet” is a forty-minute contemporary dance duet that combines technology with the human form, as well as scripted intentionality with spontaneity, into a kinetic narrative of the human condition.

It was performed at Downtown Contemporary Arts Festival (D-CAF) performance in Cairo on 3/25-26/2018, at “In the Margin” Factory Festival in Amman on 6/28/2018.

Phase 2:  Group Version

After 12 months of development, “Wojoud Wa Hodoud” evolved into an investigation of the embodied past of eight Arab performing artists of Jordanian, Palestinian, Syrian heritage living in Amman, observing the acquired habits from the childhood to adulthood, from past to present.

It was performed on 7/27/2018 at National Center for Culture & Arts, at Hakaya Festival on 9/12/2018.

Phase 3: Group Version Development
