SALOME VERSUS BLUEBEARD      View Trailer -- View Film -- 23 pictures -- Beirut, LB -- December 2012

Bluebeard's interaction with his wives prior to their imprisonment is created simultaneously with Salome's relationship with men before death. This symbiotic connection seeks to trace the varieties of individual struggles within a greater structure before forsaking or claiming individual freedom.

I processed these plays with the belief that "freedom is a daily practice", to instil more kindness and hope, such that, with time, passion overcomes the stereotyping of gender and its inherent powers and inborn beauty.

Both plays are performed simultaneously on the same stage by an ensemble of both amateur and professional dancers. The audience is asked to separate from their friends/spouses and enter on either side, observing within the same room two plots from different angles.
