Part of Shubbak Festival

One of Beirut’s youngest and most exciting artists, Yara Boustany will conjure up wondrous images and optical illusions with the simplest of means. Shadows, kaleidoscopic fragments and mirrors will transport audiences from the mountains of Lebanon to the street-life of Beirut. A strange creature invades the city, is it an ancient monster or an image of the city drowning in plastic pollution? The city is haunted by animal spirits. Like an open-ended riddle, ‘ēvolvō’ is filled with wonder and visual surprises.

Don’t miss her specially-adapted family show for younger audiences!
