Vice Versa by LAVA-Dansproduktion

Vice Versa is an unmissable multi-media performance project between the visual artist Abdalla Omari (Syria/Belgium) and the dance artist Benno Voorham (Sweden/Netherlands). Vice Versa can be characterised as a documentary performance. A work that is compelling in the way that it addresses some of the most difficult things we can speak about: the impact of war on the individual and more specific on the lives and experiences of children.

About the artists

Abdalla Omari is a Syrian painter, performing artist and filmmaker currently living in Brussels. Most recently he has created The Vulnerability Series, depicting world leaders in highly vulnerable states, breaking their image of ultimate power.

Benno Voorham is a Dutch dance artist living in Sweden since 1995. In recent years he has created productions with different groups of marginalised children: HOME with social orphans in Moldova, Ukraine and Belarus and Waiting in the Margins with internal refugees in Georgia.
