dance in and from the middle east

It brings the TiLLT writing family so much honor and joy to dedicate our eighth issue to dance in and from The Middle East. Looking at the Palestinian Dabke, contemporary performance artist Leya Mona Tawil and choreographer Mithkal Alzghair. Middle Eastern performance art takes shape in many forms, bridging the old and new, the displaced and replaced.  When we hear of The Middle East on news headlines, we so rarely see the region for it's worth and contribution as the cradle to civilization. So it is no wonder that as a reflection of the current political climate and more we are only able to cover a few of the many exciting innovators in movement in and from this unique region. We hope you enjoy.

 

TILLT TURNS ONE

 

Dear TiLLT Community!

On April 7th at 7:30pm TiLLT turns one and there is no other way we would like to celebrate than with YOU, our readers, our dancers...our family.  We will be hosting a FREE performance party at Spaceworks Williamsburgh Library.  Performances by various movement creators, alongside a free dance class taught by NYC's The Hustle Social and other exciting movement surprises will fill the evening.  We truly hope this will be an evening of diversity, inclusivity, and above all dancing.  As we know and believe here at TiLLT, dance is the strongest binding power that exists to connect us all as humans.  Let us celebrate in space, with ALL bodies.

With Love and Gratitude,

Megan Curet
