Walking Borders, a performance in collaboration with the dancer Emilia Giudicelli, Beirut, Lebanon, 2017.
Walking Borders is a performance in collaboration with dancer Emilia Giudicelli. Fattouh and Giudicelli met in Beirut while the latter was in an artist residence . Discussions about the di erent Lebanese wars took place during long walks throughout the city. One day, Fattouh evoked a memory of her childhood, when her family decided to cross borders between West and East Beirut in 1988 in the midst of the civil war and for the rst time since it began in 1975. Walking Borders emerged from that conversation, when at the age of 8, the artist discovered for the rst time the other part of Beirut.
