Overview

An evening of two artistic explorations that investigate the intersections between sexuality, sensuality, and Palestinian identity through the body, movement/dance and food. Leila Delicious & Mette Loulou von Kohl will share their works in conversation to probe the spaces of dissonance and familiarity between their individual experiences in relating to their bodies as Palestininans. 

 

Mette Loulou von Kohl & Leila Delicious

Aya Razzaz (she/her) is a Palestinian Jordanian performance and burlesque artist whose work forces space for the fragmented identities of Palestinian and levant Arab youth. Focusing on the embodied experiences of displacement, occupation, and incarceration, and how these experiences are inherited through the body, Aya’s solo and community based works invites the audience to witness and fall into various states of kinesthetic empathy.


Mette Loulou (she/her) was born from the orange at the center before the new world came. She is a queer femme, of Lebanese/Palestinian and Danish ancestry. She has lived in New York, Romania, Morocco, Denmark and England. Mette Loulou is fascinated by the intersection between her personal identities as a jumping off point to reveal, dismantle and rebuild realities and dreams. She grapples with her past to complicate and better understand her present. Mette Loulou weaves movement, words, and objects into the exploration of her embodied histories. She exists in two places at once.
