Theater-makers from Lebanon, Syria, Morocco and Tunisia will gather at Tayyouneh's Sunflower Cultural Space (aka Dawar al-Shams) this week for the first edition of "Agora 1," a platform for theater dialogue and a laboratory for experimentation.Founded in 2006, the troupe's stated goal is to seek continuity in theater practice, as a means to position themselves "against marginalized systems".Hajj-Ali promises that several other special (and secret) guests have been chosen to grace Agora's final forum, to add depth and further layers of experimentation to the discussion.In addition to allowing thespians to share their work with the Beirut public, the closing forum is will provide a space for lab participants to address fundamental questions about theater practice and the public – such as how laboratories like Agora can keep developing despite lack of national cultural policies, and how progressive thespians can bridge the gap between theory and practice."Agora 1" will run at Dawar al-Shams from Jan. 16-19 .
