Arab.AMP is a platform for experimental live art, music and ideas by artists of the SWANA diaspora, the region, and our allied communities.
Arab.AMP, curated and directed by Leyya Mona Tawil, celebrates the plurality of SWANA voices operating in futurism, hybrid and transgressive form.
Rooted in Oakland-CA; Arab.AMP is nomadic, operating in partnership with venues and festivals inter/nationally. A program of DANCE ELIXIR 501c3, we produce concerts, tours, artistic commissions, gatherings, and residencies for the communities we serve.
