a platform for the work of Arab Experimentalists
featuring music, performance and live art from diasporic communities
Arab.AMP is a platform for the work of Arab Experimentalists working in the Arab world and its diaspora.
Arab.AMP is curated and directed by Leyya Mona Tawil who has worked in the field of performance and music for over 20 years. Tawil articulates Arab Experimentalism as a field that accumulates regional and diasporic realities and futures through transgressive arts practices. Arab.AMP celebrates the plurality of Arab voices operating in futurism, the Avant Garde and experimental forms. Our programming is in conversation with, and inclusive of, the work of other diasporas and indigenous communities.
Arab.AMP is a nomadic platform that operates in partnership with venues internationally to produce live art, performance and concert programs. Arab.AMP produces artistic tours, commissions an artistic gatherings for the community it serves.
