Durub Al Tawaya V: "How Language Shapes The Mind"
Curated by Tarek Abou El Fetouh

Durub Al Tawaya will once again offered visitors and collectors the opportunity to engage with contemporary performance art through the fifth edition of Abu Dhabi Art’s performing arts programme. The programme  saw site-specific performances throughout Abu Dhabi Art and in different locations throughout the city. The title of the programme is inspired by the long paths (durub in Arabic) taken across the desert; tawaya which refers to underground water springs and to taway, which denotes layers of meaning in classical Arabic, and stands for ideas and values that are revealed as they unfold.
