Sima Dance Company: Ansaf
23 August @ 8.00 pm - 10.00 pmtbc
A new work by the Syrian/Palestinian choreographer Alaa Krimed, inspired by the writings of Canadian philosopher Alan Deneault and exploring issues facing the Arab world – the relationship between critical thinking and consumerism, and the role of excellence in serving the public good.
Krimed, who won the 2014 Arabs Got Talent, founded Sima Dance Company in Damascus back in 2003; the company later moved to Beirut and in 2015 relocated to Dubai, opening its own space in Alserkal Avenue in 2017. Since then, Sima has become successfully embedded with key cultural institutions and events in the UAE; Ansaf is commissioned by The Arts Center.
There’s a second performance on 24 August.
