Live Drawing Concert #1

Special Program

Live Drawing Concert #1

In the framework of TERDAD 2021

Saturday 3 July, 22:30 to 23:30

This event navigates the relationship between the two time-based practices of music and drawing. It is through the lens of this live mixed-media event, that assorted disciplines, perception, and the senses meet each other to expand the boundaries of performance, this is a show about a conversation.

In collaboration with Samandal, Irtijal has selected four musicians to accompany the live drawings of Samandal’s artists and illustrators as they draw live in front of the public. 


Jad Atoui: electro-acoustics
Aya Metwalli: vocals, synthesizers
Nadia Daou: vocals, electric guitar
Anthony Sahyoun: electric guitar, electronics


Ghadi Ghosn
Carla Habib
Lena Merhej
Carla Aouad
Shakeeb Abu Hamdan

The live drawing concert is taking place on the Sursock Museum esplanade. 

Live Drawing Concert #1 is part of the TERDAD 2021 festival taking place over the course of three days from July 2 until July 4 2021. Created by UNESCO under “Li Beirut”, its flagship initiative for the city recovery, TERDAD unites five local cultural associations: Metropolis Art Cinema, Zoukak Theatre Company and Cultural Association, Maqamat, Irtijal Festival, and Samandal Comics that received urgent financial support and training.
