During rehearsal on Sunday Asuka shared some of the home's creative goings on over the phone with her friend in Paris who is also an artist. This friend mentioned having seen MAQAMAT DANCE THEATRE at a festival in France.
"Four choreographers and four musicians, with different artistic experiences and ideas, coming from different continents, cultures, and countries, are meeting onstage over a banquet of food. They talk, drink, laugh, dance, and prepare food together. A simple meeting that would be a starting point to a more complex choreographic and conceptual performance structure. 'Beytna' is an invitation to the home of the other, to the artist's profession and choreographic construction. It is an invitation that confirms diversity, touches on forms and situations of the past, and searches for a new rhythm, pattern, and logic."
