Gebrael Company was created in 2020, born from the inspiration of Joseph Gebrael. Its objective is the creation and promotion of live shows and audiovisual works, but also sharing and raising awareness through educational transmission and cultural events.
Her desire is to unite and make the link between different cultures and traditions, between the spectator and the artist, between the interior and the exterior.
The company wishes to reach the general public and young public, and wishes to participate in the democratization of the performing arts by making it accessible to all social classes of the population in France and abroad.
Proud of her diverse influences, contemporary, oriental and traditional, the company erases borders and participates in the preservation of our cultural heritage by giving it a new form.
Her identity and her gestures are therefore hybrid, spiritual and artistic. Her values takes shape in her creations - HOUWA , L'ADBAHLAK , LUCID GREEN , Let it all go see what's left - and through its cultural mediation .
