Between the Seas Festival 2012: check out the full program

From August 20th to the 26th 2012 at the Wild Project (195 East 3rd street), Between the Seas festival will bring an exciting selection of performances from the Mediterranean presented alongside some of the most interesting, up and coming NYC-based Mediterranean artists. The festival aims at showcasing the talent of the emerging generation of Mediterranean performers and the diversity of the region's culture.

Highlights of this year's festival include: NYC-based Turkish choreographer Korhan



Basaran, with his new work RAu; Greek director/performer Olga Pozeli in a solo



performance exploring the limits of political corruption and responsibility; Israeli



choreographers and dancers Rachel Erdos/Ido Tadmor and Noa Dar with their highly



poetic works And Mr. and Arnica; Mancopy Dance Company from Denmark and their



newest collaboration with dancers from Lebanon, Egypt and Palestine; and Lebanese director



Lina Abiad with I.D., a new performance piece engaging with the theme of transgender



identities in the Mediterranean. In addition to the main program, special screenings, staged



readings, and educational programs (collaborations with documentarist M. Karimi-Hakak,



director Kareem Fahmy, and the Lower East Side Tenement Museum) will open the dialogue



with the audience and give platform to works in progress.
