Event description
A new performance to camera by Tania El Khoury in collaboration with Mohamad Ali “Dali” Agrebi.

About this Event

Lavender Man is an online conversation between two friends who have collaborated on three performances. Each performance happened in a different country and brought them closer. Their collaboration has changed their lives sometimes drastically and sometimes unintentionally. Lavender Man is a reflection on friendship, chosen families, the long effect of collaborative and community-based art, and the right of love and movement.

Commissioned in partnership with the Live Art Development Agency
