HOUWA, the "other" in Arabic, is the first collaboration between Joseph Gebrael and Andrew Gebrael.
Filmed in Lebanon in 2018, this short dance film depicts the discrimination, social injustice and racism that we witness in our modern society. So who is to blame in this chaos? Him, the other? But the other of the other is us .
The two artists seek in this trilogy to reconnect with the feeling of unity and to become aware of the illusion of separation .
Duration: 4 min 45
HOUWA is suitable for the stage and street scene with the Solo version L'ADBAHLAK .
