Ali Chahrour shares insights into his deeply layered TBA performance, Leila’s Death, as informed by contemporary choreography, religious ritual, and local tradition in Lebanon. TBA Guest Scholar Maya Mikdashi (Rutgers University) brings expertise in gender, art, and Lebanese politics and culture to an interpretation and discussion of the work.

About Artist Dialogues: Dynamic and generative discussions with festival artists, curators, scholars, and community leaders that illuminate TBA projects and put artists and audiences in direct dialogue.
