Yaa Samar: The Last Ward at NYUAD Arts Center

  • 10 Feb
  • The Arts Centre at NYU Abu Dhabi

This highly-visual performance combines theater and dance to reflect on the universal experience that is facing death.

Last Ward is a story about a man’s death journey in a hospital. The patient is surrounded by modern medicine’s sterile machinery and reflects on his past, relationships, and connection to the place. As the routine of family visits and doctor visits transforms into a bizarre landscape of humor and tragedy,

This evening-length performance was created during residencies at Chaillot – théâtre national de la Danse in Paris, Baryshnikov Arts Center in NYC, and Jacob’s Pillow in MA. It features an international cast that includes Khalifa Natour as a guest artist. The script is in Arabic with English subtitles.
