city in motion: interactive walk
Yaraqa & TLB Destinations partner to bring together unique interactive city experiences by using movement & performance as tools of discovery, investigation, and engagement: How can we as inhabitants of the city of Beirut situate ourselves in a city constantly inclined to overwrite itself? How can you as visitors make sense of a city with overlapping layers and an abundance of stories? City in Motion is an interactive city exploration, a dynamic unfolding of the the city, and an encounter with its people's narratives.
