For nearly 1,000 years the minaret of the Great Mosque of Aleppo soared above Syria's largest city. It now lies in ruins, like so many other monuments and historical buildings throughout the world. Choreographer Omar Rajeh from Beiroet builds up in #minaret: a visually and musically overwhelming dance performance, a plea for the destroyed cities, their inhabitants, culture, history, value and their future. Using images from a drone floating above the stage and a live soundtrack inspired by the classic musical heritage from Aleppo #minaret makes a human statement against the cruelty of wars and the ideologies behind it.
