Adham Hafez in anticipation of his show, TO CATCH A TERRORIST, opening this week at La MaMa as part of the 2018 La MaMa Moves Dance Festival:

"I think the important thing is to know that these are real court hearings documenting Arab people trying to become U.S. Citizens. It's important to know this work and research should only begin with the performance and it should continue long after the debut. I'm inviting artists and thinkers to discuss and continue the exploration of what comes up."

Part of La MaMa Moves! 2018 Dance Festival
Production of Adham Hafez Company and HaRaKa Platform (Egypt)

To Catch A Terrorist is a cryptic work that looks at the formation of disciplined bodies, borders and the instrumentalist usage of fear as a sovereign act. Through data analysis, exorcist dances, demographic research, court hearing documents, visa applications, and disappearing traditional choreographies -- this new work enmeshes science, history, performance and law.
