Durub Al Tawaya VI: Technology
Curated by Tarek Abou El Fetouh
Moving into its sixth edition, Durub Al Tawaya, the annual performing arts program investigates technology as a fundamental force in the development and evolution of art, providing artists with new tools for artistic expression. Performance artists today are creating works with many new and different forms, engaging with various urban contexts beyond the usual venues of the theater or the gallery.
Since its first edition, Durub Al Tawaya has been committed to developing connections with the city of Abu Dhabi through inviting artists to present and produce works that engage with its urban fabric and its inhabitants, creating a new visual language specific to this context. In collaboration with different partners in the city, the program of Durub Al Tawaya will extend over three months, and will host performances and new productions as well as works from its repertoire in different art venues and other spaces throughout the city.
