Let me be Christina in Beirut for a day.
Nothing seems to connect those two individuals on stage more than the intricate instinct of expressing themselves in a way that feels crucial to them.
Through very different journeys, they both aspire for more freedom and personal enlightenment. Their bodies have archived traces of experiences, Things that happened in their past and that echo inside them with an urge for expression.
There is also a war on each side. It's a different one. As contradictory and diverse as they can be, those two dancers are linked to each other with a fairly mysterious connection.
So see you very soon in Beirut for one day.
Christina will be there.
