NAJ 2012

Nehna wel Amar wel Jiran is a free, outdoor festival, open to any and everybody, organised by Collectif Kahraba. The festival offers theatre, dance, puppetry, storytelling and music taking the form of a guided tour. In 2011, it gathered about 30 artists and more than 1000 spectators from all walks of life.

And since then, our neighbours keep asking: “ Is the party soon?”
Yes, it is!

This year, Nehna wel Amar wel Jiran, will again take place from the30th of August to the 1st of September 2012 on the Vendôme stairs, in Mar Mikhael, Beirut.
Collectif Kahraba will animate the Vendôme stairs for the new edition of artistic evenings by bringing together over 30 artists: dancers, puppeteers, artists, musicians, storytellers, and actors.
For three days, stories will be woven in Arabic, French, English, Armenian, music, and even silence, through doorways, a garden, a balcony or rooftop, finally culminating in a grand ball
under the stars!
Because it is essential to share moments of beauty within family, because live art is a privileged place of encounter and living together, because art and culture are two necessary ingredients for human dignity and the construction of our societies, we again invite all our partners, sponsors, friends and neighbours to join us and support Nehna wel Amar wel Jiran.
