Preview performances of Last Ward, a new evening length performance by Yaa Samar! Dance Theatre. Last Ward follows one man's journey towards death in a hospital room. Surrounded by the sterile mechanisms of modern medicine, the patient reflects on his life, relationships and connection to place, as the ritual of doctor visits and family calls merge with his imagination into a surreal landscape of tragedy and humor. Written and directed by Amir Nizar Zuabi and choreographed by Samar Haddad King with Yaa Samar! Dance Theatre and guest artist Khalifa NatourLast Ward blends dance and theater (in Arabic with English subtitles) in a highly-visual evening length performance.
