- JUNGLE FEVER (wish you were here) consists of a series of indoor and outdoor collective experiments in an attempt to re-invent tourism as a collective exploration of personal borders as if they were exotic sites. In Beirut I guide two groups of willing ‘tourists’ on a trip to their own “hidden paradise”. The first one on the roof of Zico house in the centre of Beirut. We also took to the streets to create a series of short improvised actions responding to the environment.

In Sunflower theatre, the tour was focused around the famous martyr square statue, a monument to the troubled history of the country, finishing as a series of improvised reenactment.

a few of those who got involved; zico house, hatem imam, susanne schuda, yasuyo tanaka, sunflower theatre, human & urban, georges h. rabbath, nour beydoun, maya ghorayeb, grand papier...
