Ta'sheeq in Arabic means dovetail. In this project, a collective of Syrian poets, musicians and visual artists collaborate and merge their passions to recreate and present poetry featuring performance, live art and musical accompaniment. By weaving these creative forms, the artists transcend imposed creative boundaries and offer new experiential nuances.

Selected poems will be read in Arabic and translated into English in a choreographed performance.
