An exploration of musicality and movement to the music of Beirut

Beirut Duet began its journey in Indah’s living room as an exploration of musicality and movement dynamics influenced by the music of Beirut.  It was originally created as a duet and has since been adapted for groups of four, six, eight, and twelve dancers ranging in age from 14 - 26.  The work premiered in New York in 2010 and has been performed internationally.
