The Dramatheque - Radical experience of HAKAWATI Theatre/ Lebanon
Category: Creative and Critical Writings
Year: 2018
Status: Open

This project aspires to contribute to the documentation of the history of Lebanese theater using a variety of ways that allows current and future generations to delve into it, to take note of its course and its effects, to question its problems and to interact with it. The “Radical experience of HAKAWATI Theatre/ Lebanon” is a digital audio-visual as well as printed archive of Lebanon’s leading theater experiences, which left a deep mark on Lebanese and Arab theater and continue to impact the course of contemporary theater. This project envisages to take a preliminary step in the technical documentation of Lebanese theater, paving the way for the archiving and circulation of the most important theatrical experiences in Lebanon.

The play is built on two elements: an actress and a treadmill. It is my habit, me, Hanan Hajj Ali, a Lebanese citizen and an actress, to do some daily jogging in order to stay fit and avoid fat, osteoporosis, stress, etc. This routine creates continuity and interruption between my personal intimate space as Hanan and between the public space of the city where I jog. The exercise helps me release hormones like adrenaline and dopamine, which have the opposite effects of rousing and calming, construction and destruction,  amidst a city that destroys to rebuild and destroy again.
