“On the Roads of Arabia"
8-10 Nov 2018 | 8pm
A masterpiece of music and motion, On the Roads of Arabia is set to be one of the most dazzling events of our anniversary week. Performed by over 80 international artists – and directly inspired by our latest exhibition Roads of Arabia – the show invites you to travel the history of Arabia’s ancient roads to better understand how they, and their crossroads of culture, led us here.
Enjoy a journey through dance, music and poetry from the Arabian Peninsula, Africa, the Mediterranean, India, Indonesia and China, while marveling at street artist Koom’s extraordinary calligraphic performance, magically revealed during the programme.
Commissioned by Louvre Abu Dhabi in response to the Roads of Arabia exhibition, each sequence emphasises the harmony of humanity, a spirit of sharing, dialogue and common artistic adventure. Thanks to the diversity of the cultures represented, this creation will offer a lively illustration of the universal values that bind us.
