Thanks to the Hammana Artist house for providing us with the space despite the difficulties the country is going through.
"Slowing down is not a sign of laziness. On the contrary, slowing down will eventually allow us to hear that voice deep down inside of us; a voice that speaks without judgment and acts without fear; a voice that awakens, transmutes, and heals. To be able listen to that voice in a world that has become too loud is a revelation. To be able to be consistently tuned into that voice is a revolution."
Beirut Contemporary Ballet walked into the Slow and the manifesto came out dancing, for love, for revolution and all there is in between.

Since everyone’s been feeling tender towards Rumi’s quotes, here’s one that sums up this project quite well:
Thirst drove me to the water
Where I drank the Moon’s reflection.
This is a series of stories written in the shadows of Romance.
Sandy Nour's collection is based on the phases of the Moon. Our second collaboration is built over the effect on the senses that we undergo from the New Moon to the Harvest moon.
Produced in concert with the Beirut Contemporary Ballet

We are 3 dance enthusiasts behind this project, Jana G. Younes, Jens Bjerregaard & Wafa Bouti, and together we join the skillset and talent to desire and experience; things needed to suggest norms for what can one do with a performing arts company in Lebanon
We have chosen the name Beirut Contemporary Ballet to reflect first our practice that swings between the classical and the more contemporary fundamentals of dance; and second our ambition to build a full-time professional dance company in Beirut.
Beirut Contemporary Ballet plans on drawing its own path into the world of dance, by:
- Reaching a broader audience, as well as the dance lovers
- Showing dance on a technical and advanced level
- Creating current, relevant and innovative works
