Remaking the city is a live video and music performance that combines original video recordings by La Mirza (Randa Mirza) and original music by Munma (Jawad Nawfal).
The performance is an attempt to reconnect to the city of Beirut by paying tribute to its iconic neglected landmarks. The disconnection with the city is translated in the performance by the transmission interferences affecting both the videotapes and the soundtrack.
