"Zoukak Sidewalks" will be familiar to anyone following Zoukak Theater Company – being the name of a yearlong series of performances, workshops and talks by international and local artists. Launched in 2013, the series has been retooled into a new performance festival, opening next month.The premise of the "Sidewalks" program was to introduce the tools of the trade and to bring the audience closer to performing arts practice.The process of reformatting a yearlong program as a festival has given birth to "Focus Liban," a performing arts residency program created in conjunction with several institutions – the French Institute, Middle East Airlines, the British Council, and the Goethe Institute.Six artists who submitted work to Focus Liban but didn't make it to residency – Chrystele Khodr and Wael Ali, Monika Basbous, Dima Matta, Yara Bou Nassar, Mona Mehri and Camille Brunelle – will pitch their developing ideas to professionals attending "Sidewalks".For the public, 10 artists – working in theater music and contemporary dance – will stage their projects in the context of "Focus Liban".
