A physical theatre performance combining dance, visuals, circus, clownery, and song, created and interpreted by Nicole Nigro (CA) and Felix Baumann (DE) while in residence with Diyar Theatre (PSE). Marhaban is filled with tender humour, wild play, and simple physical poetry with the aim of uniting young audiences. Baumann and Nigro created the 40-minute physical theatre performance, entitled MARHABAAN during their residency in Bethlehem (PSE), in collaboration with Diyar Dance Theatre. Originally it was aimed for and with young Palestinian audiences.
Now they are planing a recreation of the piece in 2020, with the aim to enlarge both, the creative potential and quality of the performance itself, as well as the integration of their experience within the community of Palestine, with the aim to share them with a wider spectrum of audience, both in the different arab countries, and in Europe.
