Name: Every Last Breath Lebanon Tour
Details: World Premiere – Monnot Theatre, Beirut
Reflecting its global approach to dance, and its aim for social impact, Danish dance company Mancopy is collaborating with four dancers from the Arab World for the creation of its new dance piece EVERY last BREATH, and is organizi…ng a tour in Lebanon between the 14th and the 24th of June 2012, before performing in Denmark and around the world.
About the performance
