During their research residency for Dancing on the Edge with Satellietgroep at DCR Gueststudios in The Hague, theater practitioners Lina Issa and Mayar Alexan connected with local co-authors to develop a mutual understanding of shared identity inspired by the sea. The project focusses on the relationship between the human body and the sea, and the sea as a body of narratives, connecting Libanon, Syria and the Netherlands and beyond. How can we perceive within our local culture the global concept of drowning and being submerged in the memories we may share?
The site-specific performance 'A Ticket to Atlantis' is presented during Dancing On The Edge Festival, 8-12 Nov at 16:30, on the beach with after talks.
The traveling installation 'The Atantis Project - A Sea of Stories', from 8-18 Nov, shares the narratives collected during the research and aims at spreading them again.
