Syrian filmmaker, choreographer and dancer Eyas al Mokdad holds an M.A. in Transmedia (audio-visual arts) from the LUCA School of Arts in Brussels, and a B.A. in Ballet from the Higher Institute of Dramatic Arts in Damascus. He has directed several films, including “The Last Time” (2006), “Dancers and Walls” (2010), “Dough” (2011), “Bloodshed” (2012), “Tahtt Al-Khazzan” (co-directed with Orwa al Mokdad, 2014), and “The Other Half of Your Shadow” (2015).

Eyas Al Mokdad works on a dance performance called ‘Dust’.The research and experimentation stage deals with the fate of Ghouta in Damascus and the city of Aleppo and counterparts from the affected cities in Syria and elsewhere in the world, through a character that stand up from the rubble of the devastated city, screaming through his body in the face of savagery, in the face of a silent world in front of a tragedy and a new massacre.
