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.
Video clip I did for Jean Marie Riachi.
It was carte blanche for me, and very little time to do it. I very much enjoyed, directing, filming and editing that short. Lassive mood; like the music itself.
Watch, rate, leave a nice comment…And buy their CD so they can make money so we can do another clip soon!
Thanks again to all the Mashrou3 Band, and to all the team, it was a real pleasure working with you guys.
It was a full-week rush!
It was exhausting as hell, but was so much fun that fatigue gets totally forgotten.
First, the people from the team (apart from Yasmine, Chadi & me):
Abdallah Hattoum worked wonders creating an even better set than what we had imagined, on a very short notice too;
Maher Safar did more than producing and was always present anytime anything was needed;
Nadim Saoma, our DOP, whom I suspect to be a wizard, used some magic to produce some fantastic images within harsh conditions, and managed to make us all laugh in the process.
But that is not everything: the people from Mashrou3 Leila were all extraordinary, easy-going, never uttering a negative word, no matter how much we tortured them. Not only that, but they even helped all along during the process, staying later then needed of them to brief the next band member in queue, giving helpful opinions, and so on.
All in all, thanks to everyone involved, it was a great shooting that felt more like fun than actual work.
