Now showing at Al Madina Theater, That Part of Heaven is a solemn depiction of the aftermath of the Lebanese Civil War in dance form.

A moving piece choreographed by Omar Rajeh and Mia Habis, the performance is meant to be our present day perspective of the Civil War—in that our refusal to acknowledge its impact is slowly warping our everyday lives. Beirut.com interviewed Rajeh for a deeper look into what the performance meant, why the dancers were all dressed as women, and what audience members were expected to take away from the show.
