Triangulated City An interactive Live Art event in 3 locations 19, 20, 21 August 2009 at 18:30 - Free Entry 3 performances in 3 secret locations in Beirut. To disclose each location meet at any one of these 3 meeting points at 18:30 on the 19, 20, 21 August 2009: • Long Beach Parking Area, Manara • Barometre Pub (facing Khoury Hospital), Hamra • Corner of Furn el Chebak & Sami Es Solh, (intersection) For more information: Triangulated City is a Live Art event that investigates the movement of superstition and rumour that spreads through the streets of Beirut. Over three days, in three locations, three performances will unfold simultaneously each evening. The audience is invited to three (3) meeting points where they will be given a clue to the location of the sites. This begins an adventure where the audience explores these three locations spread throughout the city, using a series of keys, codes, secrets and rumours, that will move with them from place to place. Each location corresponds to one of three structural elements of superstition: conviction, ritual, and omens.

Zoukak Theatre Company and Cultural Association has worked in collaboration with Lotos Collective (London/New York) and with invited participants to create this multi-disciplinary site-specific performance world. Through the stories, memories, and urban legends born from the sites, Triangulated City explores the geographical and geopolitical movement of narrative through the streets of Beirut. As the audience moves through the city from location to location, the performance expands to include the journey each individual may take, blurring the boundaries between performance site and reality.

Triangulated City encourages spectators to view the city as a living performance with each location a place of confrontation and encounter.
