By Hanane Hajj Ali

In collaboration with Eric Deniaud and Abdallah AlKafri

Hanane, a fifty-something year old Lebanese actress and citizen, exercises daily to avoid osteoporosis, obesity, and depression. She takes walks in her secluded, personal space, and in the open space of Beirut. Along the way, she revisits dreams, desires, hopes, disillusions, characters, and roles – mostly several Medeas with whom she shares some commonalities. The effects of this daily routine are contradictory. As a matter of fact, two hormones are stimulated in her body: Dopamine and Adrenaline that are alternatively destructive and constructive, amidst a city that destroys to build and builds to destroy. Alone on stage, Hanane – woman, wife and mother – lifts the veil on her identity, becoming an ‘unveiled’ performer, where personas progressively parade to fit together like Russian dolls.
