Curator Nedjma Haj Benchelabi gives a platform to four young choreographers this Fringe, as part of Arab Art Focus, a showcase of new theatre and performance from the Arab region and diaspora.

New Contemporary Arab Dance Performances is a weekend presentation of new contemporary dance pieces which will give an idea on the themes and developments of new modes of expression, by young contemporary artists. The pieces will be dealing with themes of the challenges artists face to perform, using performance to challenge context, and respond to a sense of performative urgency in a transformative time.
