Tashweesh is an audio-visual performance group from Ramallah, Palestine, which brings together installation artists Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme and musician boikutt, in a joint performance that combines sound, music and image. The result is an exploration of the collision between sound and video field recordings, archive material, vocals, breaks and soundscapes.

Performing in Beirut for the first time, Tashweesh will present a premiere of their most recent set, following 2010’s performances in venues such as CCA (Glasgow), SouthBank Centre (London), Danish Film Institute (Copenhagen), Images Festival (Copenhagen) and Re:View (Katowice).

“Tashweesh is the latest ‘voice’ to emerge from Palestine, representing a new generation of artists who are not only cutting edge but blurring the edges between artists disciplines, social action and geographical boundaries” – Aaron Cezar, Director of the Delfina Foundation, London
