Without Damage

by Mohamed Fouad




Without Damage is a contemporary dance performance that is both heavily charged but that is also about nothing. It is based on choreographic research by the soloist Mohamed Fouad and is a reflection on the navigation of internal and external forces. The piece is also about a commodification of the time that the performer spends offering their skills, identity, emotions, and body to the audience.
