Arts Canteen in partnership with El-Funoun (Palestine) and Hawiyya Dance Company (UK) proudly present "CURFEW" a contemporary dance production. With a fusion of traditional and contemporary dance moves, this production, currently at its development stage, is aimed at challenging ordinary forms of expression and creating a new form of communication to open engagement with a new audience. The production does not give an answer; rather it questions the audience and encourages them to find their own answers by exploring and reflecting on their position towards forms of oppression, injustice, and complexity. Time passes by, and life goes on. Would you take responsibility or rather keep the “CurFew”? - El-Funoun Dance Troupe فرقة الفنون الشعبية الفلسطينية An independent, non-profit artistic organization established in 1979 by a small number of enthusiastic, talented and committed artists.

Since then, El-Funoun has been crowned as the lead Palestinian dance company in Palestine, as well as among Palestinians in exile. El-Funoun led over one thousand performances locally and internationally. - Hawiyya A women’s dabke group who explore identity, culture and resistance through dance. Hawiyya aims to use more contemporary choreographic devices to explore narrative work and expression through this medium. The culturally diverse dancers have come together to unite and share their commitment to the Palestinian cause. Collective Chorography (El-Funoun & Hawiyya Dancers) Artistic director: Sharaf DarZaid Managing director: Jamila Boughelaf Please note that the performance will then be followed by Q&A session and an in-depth discussion with the audience to unpack some of the main concepts addressed through the dance representation.

Due to the venue limited availability on both dates, book early to avoid disappointment.
