We produced this Ad for Beirut Dance Project’s Fund Raising event.
Founded in 2009 by Nada Kano, one of Lebanon’s most renowned Ballet Masters, The Beirut Dance Project aims to provide children from underprivileged urban areas with dance classes, education and personal development opportunities that they are otherwise denied.
The first group of children is now ready to perform and will be on stage for the first time at MONNOT Theater on May 23, 2013, performing a classic ballet “La Belle et La Bête”.
Choreography and artistic direction: Nada Kano
Performed by 6 dancers
Through bodies that find and hang on to each other, suspended in space – that of exploration – comes the time of heavy legacies, old wounds, the mad mental race… frolics become dialectics, internal debates. Within the solitary chaos of misunderstanding, each one enters in his personal discussion: Can we escape? From the other, from projecting? From feeling? From this gut craziness? Whether we dance with the other or his image, an imaginary other, dance remains vigor.
«Un•re(a)lating» tells the story of adventures and incomprehension between individuals but also within the forces of our environment.
This Ad was produced by Yelo with the help of Yasmine Sarout and Elie Dagher.
Part of a large campaign, here is a short movie we produced for UNICEF summing up the challenges and opportunities that encounters a child at risk in Lebanon;
What is interesting here is, that UNICEF was the first organization to make such studies and get accurate numbers on Lebanese ground, let alone in the region.
The report they did is huge and detailed, so here is a tailored short movie that gives an overall simpler view on the matter.
A project in full 2d! Had to be short stories quickly understandable, and in 2D only!
Always exiting to have 2D projects, because they aren’t much in demand in Lebanon, la sou2 el hazz. A wonderful medium not yet appreciated for it true value.
