Nostalgia To Baghdad, a performance held at The Visual Arts Collective as a final project during Luma's residency at Surel's Place in October/November 2018

In this performance, I share what I witnessed during my life in Iraq for thirty years. The concept of the relation between politics and peoples lives and existence, focusing on the effect of wars and sanctions.
Please note that it's have been edited to be as close as 5 minutes, the performance lasted more than 30 minutes. I tried to pick some important moments, especially during the storytelling section. you can also take a look at the other link for the same project at Vimeo, which has all the live painting and animation section.
