Dardishi - The Fear of Not Making Sense


About This Event

An online movement space for Black, indigenous and other people of colour. When words are no longer sufficient to manifest the impact of the last year, Lama Amine guides a somatic release session focusing on visualisation exercises to harness rootedness in the present. Re-imagine the restrictions of linguistic expression and tackle patterns of fear and trauma through improvisation in a safe space. A moment to tune into noticing, listening and responding to the body’s ability to produce its own sequences of rhythm, tempo and textures.  

Lama Amine is a performer, choreographer, movement director, teacher and activist based in Lebanon. She holds a Master of Fine Art (MFA) in Movement: Directing and Teaching, from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama (CSSD), London. Lama is Senior Arts Manager at Seenaryo, an organisation specialised in theatre and play-based learning in Lebanon and Jordan. She is also part of TNT Theatre, performing in the world premiere of My Sister Syria. She worked as a movement director, and a physical theatre tutor with first- and second-year BA students at CSSD and Saint Mary’s University. In 2016 she worked on RISE production with The Old Vic New Voices as an assistant movement director. In 2015 she was selected to participate in Home Grown Theatre Project, a collaboration with the Kevin Spacey Foundation in Sharjah, UAE. Lama has worked on two operas with Robert Wilson in New York. She has also been a dancer with Sima Dance company in Dubai.
