Most of the Moving Image work though will be better viewed on my vimeo channel: https://vimeo.com/mayachami

Au Quotidien

Maya Chami et Farah Nehmé

La pièce aborde les sujets d’oppression et d’agression que les femmes subissent chaque jour, au niveau de l’expression, la vie, la féminité, la progéniture, le mouvement, et la sexualité.
Le projet est un acte de résistance pour récupèrer l’intégralité de l’être féminin.

What Myriam Did Not Forget at the Mosaic Rooms

Multimedia work done in collaboration with Dia Batal, in which the story of Batal’s grandmother is unfolded through the fragmented narratives of a journey of displacement. Forced to leave her home in Palestine, and never able to return, this is an emotive animation that examines the significance of involuntary departures from a homeland, and how and where the idea of home can remain after such conflict.

About the project:

Silk Thread” is a site-specific performance investigating inherited social structures that define and shape gender stereotypes as identified through local mythologies, fairy tales, modern legends, contemporary stories and actual events. The performance invites the audience to witness acts and listen to stories drawing a fine line between the real and the imaginary. The fantasy of the tales and the violence of actuality converge to form one image, bringing our collective unconscious up close and aiming to reshuffle references and question certainties around gender dynamics. Through a re-appropriation of orally transmitted tales, interwoven with original texts, the performers will lead the audience across a panorama of characters borrowed from various archetypes of the male and female normative identities that reveal themselves through fiction and in reality.
