Dabke Workshop With Al-Zaytouna

Dabke Workshop With Al-Zaytouna: 'East in East' will present a dabke-dance workshop guided by members of the wonderful Al Zaytouna dance troupe. Al Zaytouna is the UK- based Palestinian dance theatre troupe aiming to provide diverse audiences with the opportunity to experience Palestinian culture through performances and workshops. They fuse traditional Palestinian folk dance (dabke) with contemporary dance, theatre, poetry, music, and digital media to create inspiring pieces of dance theatre to tell powerful stories about Palestine, often focusing on identity and cultural resistance. This unique experience will allow you to learn the basics and put it to practice straight away with a great playlist to see out the night. Taking place on 4 June, 2015 at Passing Clouds, 1 Richmond Road, London E8 4AA.
