JOGGING: Theatre in Progress

January 16

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00am, repeating until January 17, 2019


16–17 January 2019, 8pm
Esplanade Theatre Studio
80 min with no intermission
Performed in Arabic with English surtitles


Hanane, a fifty-something year old Lebanese actress and citizen, exercises daily to avoid osteoporosis, obesity, and depression.

As she takes walks through both secluded and open spaces in Beirut, she revisits dreams, desires, hopes, disillusionments, characters, and roles—most of which reveal themselves to be contemporary Medeas with whom she shares some commonalities.

The effects of this daily routine of jogging are contradictory. Her body is stimulated through exercise with two hormones, dopamine and adrenaline, both alternating between destruction and construction. Their natural cycles within Hanane—woman, wife and mother—echo that of her city, one that destroys to build and builds to destroy.
