To mark the 76th anniversary of Lebanese independence, dancer Nawal Raad delivers an unique exploration of the meeting of East and West.
Born in Beirut and raised in Lebanon, and graduating in Arabic literature from Sorbonne Paris IV, Nawal Raad is the bearer of two cultures.
From traditional Lebanese dabké dance, to Egyptian dance and dervish whirling, her performances feed on multiple influences and are invitations to travel. Her experience with string puppet theatre, contemporary dance, and Japanese Butoh mark her creations, which oscillate between tradition and modernity.
Nawal Raad enjoys an international reputation and appears at music and dance festivals around the world, frequently together with musician-composer Abaji and the Joubran Trio.
