Come and play
Come and play has been the constant tool in interpreting beirut’s appropriations. this has triggered a sense of absence highlighted in the city’s playful approach as a form of survival. the final installation introduces beirut from within the service, the city’s strongest public element, through a performative ride in the areas of gemmayze and mar mikhael. The trajectory explores a set of physical interventions and performances that are meant to trigger a different reading of our city through appropriation. along with a set of physical installations. This group created performances with students, friends, and a small fleet of service taxi drivers, revolving around the concept of “play as a survival kit”.
