Arts Canteen in partnership with El-Funoun Palestinian Popular Dance Troupe and Hawiyya Dance Company proudly present "CURFEW" a contemporary dance production.
With a fusion of traditional and contemporary dance moves, this production, currently at its development stage, is aimed at challenging ordinary forms of expression and creating a new form of communication to open engagement with a new audience.
The production does not give an answer; rather it questions the audience and encourages them to find their own answers by exploring and reflecting on their position towards forms of oppression, injustice, and complexity.
Time passes by, and life goes on. Would you take responsibility or rather keep the “CurFew”?
- El-Funoun Dance Troupe فرقة الفنون الشعبية الفلسطينية
An independent, non-profit artistic organization established in 1979. Since then, El-Funoun has been crowned as the lead Palestinian dance company in Palestine, as well as among Palestinians in exile. El-Funoun is widely recognized as the cultural entity that has played the most significant role in reviving and reinvigorating Palestinian dance and music folklore. Since its inception, El-Funoun has aimed at expressing the spirit of Arab-Palestinian folklore and contemporary culture through unique combinations of traditional and stylized dance and music. El-Funoun led over one thousand performances locally and internationally.
A women’s dabke group who explore identity, culture and resistance through dance. Hawiyya aims to use more contemporary choreographic devices to explore narrative work and expression through this medium. The culturally diverse dancers have come together to unite and share their commitment to the Palestinian cause.
