Eastern Winds

Genre, Länge
Dance, 9min

Throughout 2011, a rhythmic chant echoed across the Arab lands, as young protestors called for government reform, economic opportunity and political freedom. This wave of demonstrations skipped borders with ease, carried in newspapers and magazines, on Twitter and Facebook, and the airwaves of al Jazeera and al Arabiya. These events came to be known as the Arab Awakening.

«Eastern Winds» is a visual dance journey giving voice and color to the political and social struggles that took place across Arab countries during the 2011 revolutions and beyond.
