• Dabkeh for beginners

This workshop was conceived as part of the Assembly 2020 Youth Takeover public programme and is delivered by artist and designer Tala Khalil. Limited capacity, first-come first-serve basis. Kindly RSVP to the workshop and successful registrations will receive details and instructions for joining the session.

Join Tala Khalil (member of the Assembly at Jameel Arts Centre) in a traditional dabkeh practice where participants learn the basic Palestinian dabkeh moves, while creating a mini choreography to folkloric music.

Palestinian by origin, Jordanian by nationality, Emirati by upbringing, Tala Yahya Khalil has always struggled with a sense of displacement. Through her academic journey as a visual communication student at the American University of Sharjah, Khalil delved into aspects of identity, culture, gender, expressing them through photography, experimental film, books, posters and installations.
