Sadler’s Wells partners with Shubbak, London’s largest biennial festival of contemporary Arab culture, to introduce the poignant work of Syrian dancer and choreographer Mithkal Alzghair. In a double bill evening, he draws attention to the human being amidst the complexities of migration and war. Deconstructing Syrian traditional dances, he brings to the surface the paradox of a deeply rooted culture and its current experience of displacement.

"This solo isn’t a documentary on the Syrian war. It touches on the fundamental question of what it is to be human"

Presented in partnership with Shubbak Festival 2017, with support from Institut français du Royaume Uni as part of its series En Scène!
