Tashweesh is an audio-visual performance group from Ramallah, Palestine, which brings together installation artists Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme and musician Boikutt, in a joint performance that combines sound, music, and image. The result is an exploration of the collision between sound and video field recordings, archive material, vocals, breaks, and soundscapes.

Performing in Beirut for the first time, Tashweesh will present a premiere of their most recent set, following last year’s performances in venues such as CCA (Glasgow), Southbank centre (London), Danish film institute (Copenhagen), images festival (Copenhagen) & re: view (Katowice).

Presented by ruptured and Beirut art center Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme
