In this piece, using an intense physicality and a simple yet effective stage design, Ali Chahrour deals with the persistence of memory in people’s lives. Despite efforts to suppress memories, they impose themselves on both the mind and the body. Through On the Lips Snow, Ali Chahrour illustrates – sometimes whimsically and sometimes dramatically – people’s battle with the past and how it results in a new reality. The piece was produced by BIPOD/Maqamat Dance House in Beirut.
