Marie Al Fajr shares dance techniques and research methods from her practice over the past two decades. Enmeshed in exploring the Arab-Muslim and Ottoman histories of poetry, mysticism and choreography, Marie Al Fajr builds contemporary dance work that stems from in-depth historical investigations. The ‘hidden garden,’ a metaphor common in Arab miniature depictions, songs and poems from bygone times, is an invitation to look at a unique dance material and somatic practices.
