Playground | Performance by Ali El-Darsa

27 July 2018 Event

Playground (2018) is a research-based performance developed over a series of workshops with performers living in Beirut.

Date: April 21 – August 25, 2018 Location: Marfa’ Gallery At once familiar and alien, landscapes are at the core of Talar Aghbashian’s work.
