“A Step Too Far” is an evening in two parts presented in collaboration with the Beursschouwburg
. The night begins with a walk between the bars Beurscafé, Cobra, and Lord Byron in Brussels city center for Les mots bleus — a series of intimate readings* of new writings by artists Andeel
(EG) with Mary Jirmanus Saba
(LB), Rana Hamadeh
(LB/NL), and Abdellah Taïa
(MA). Later, the program continues at the Beurscafé with a story told by filmmaker and geographer Mary Jirmanus Saba, a performance by poet and musician Noor Al-Samarrai
(IQ/US), and ends with music mixed by cartoonist and writer Andeel.
The first of a new series of evening programs, “A Step Too Far” is an ongoing experiment by Mophradat
with different forms of direct public address that propose changed dynamics between artists and audiences that generate immediate relationships in shared social space. “A Step Too Far” implies both a setting where gentle intimacy is desired yet unattainable, but also a situation where intentional provocation elicits unease. These evenings will continuously swing between both. You can read more information about the event here.
