In the past months I’ve been working with an amazing group of artists from Beirut and Zurich on a project called „Nouvelle Nahda“. The premiere in Zurich would have been on April 2 at Theater Neumarkt, the premiere in Beirut on April 23 at Station Beirut.

In order not to lose the creative energy we’ve been floating on when the shows got cancelled we decided to transform some of our work into an E-publication.

The launch will be on April 2nd, same day, there will be a livestream artist talk with the team from Beirut and Zurich about the project „Nouvelle Nahda“, revolutions and renaissance. What does it mean today, in our world, to be an artist in times of a pandemic? What does it mean to reawaken the society-changing power of art, out of the spirit of the “Nahda” (Arab. for Renaissance, Awakening) and as revolutionary potency towards a future that one wants to shape actively?

I would like to cordially invite you to take a look at the publication (online from April 2 on, will send the link soon, you can also find it on and join us for the talk.

Stay safe and much love,
