Description

Join OM grown dancers and their season 2 debut - ALKHAWF!

ALKHAWF is the first in a trilogy about metabolizing fear. In Alkhawf (meaning fear in Arabic), dancers will acknowledge their fears and in doing so pull the audience into their psyche, using physical movements, elaborate props and live projection; a multi disciplinary production. The second and third pieces, Muajahat Alkhawf and Bila Khawf, speak to facing and living without fear and will premier in 2019 as a three-part evening length work.


S
O FEAR THEM NOT,
BUT FEAR ME,
IF YOU ARE ONE -
I FEAR NONE, BUT ME.


Additionally, enjoy the debut premier of OM still growing and their new work 'I move (because) It Moves me.'

THE DANCE IS A POEM -
OF WHICH EACH MOVEMENT
IS A WORD.
