"Sounds from here is a dance theatre portrait that presents the awareness of one woman amidst the changes that are inevitable; Changes in environment, in body, and in thought. The Solo explores the constant re-evaluation one has to do in order to survive, and the push and pull of the psyche that affects all areas of life; A psyche, that had been affected and afflicted with an existence that is plagued with the fact that a truly personal experience can never completely be shared. With expressive dance, multilayered soundscape and video footage, the piece represents a metaphor for the struggle and conflicts in life and the essence of womanhood. English-Arabic spoken."
