International Dance Day – message from the Arab countries
For 2018, to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the International Theatre Institute, and to underline the cross-cultural and international aspect of dance, five authors have been asked to write a message, one from each of the five UNESCO regions – Africa, the Americas, Arab Countries, Asia Pacific and Europe.
The message from the Arab countries is by Georgette Gebara from Lebanon. You can find information about Georgette online, and an English translation of her message for International Dance Day is available in pdf format.
