Despite setting up shop just this April, arts center Citerne Beirut has shut, and ceased all operations.Founded by Maqamat Dance Theatre founders Omar Rajeh and Mia Habis, the space sought to offer a program of performances, workshops and events. Citerne's nonpermanent structure was erected on land rented from Forum de Beyrouth for the year, with intentions to shift to another location for April 2020 . Their permit to use the structure lapsed, with a three-month grace expiring July 31 .Rajeh said Beirut Municipality Gov. Ziad Chebib refused to extend the permit.Italy's Capannori Municipality has invited them to establish Citerne there.
