LEYYA MONA TAWIL: DESTROY// MINNEAPOLIS Opening Reception

Destroy//   

A new ritual for new times.

Leyya Tawil builds the work on location in one day with local artists.

In performance, the dance destroys itself.

In collaboration with local dancers and musicians, dance artist and composer, Leyya Mona Tawil, will bring her day long performance, ‘Destroy// All Places’, to The Soap Factory. ‘Destroy// All Places’ is a new ritual for new times. The performance is composed, but untethered. The artists attempt a score imbedded with mechanisms that make its execution increasingly impossible, forcing the material into stages of deterioration and evolution. ‘Destroy// All Places’ began in San Francisco in 2012, and has since visited over 23 cities including Saint Petersburg, Rome, Cairo and Athens.  Over 100 artists have participated in the project internationally.

Tawil’s project for The Soap Factory, ‘Destroy// Minneapolis,’ is a metaphor for renewal and resistance. The health of a city is dependent on change; a change that requires destruction as part of the life cycle.
